For as long as she can remember, Sarah has always been active. She grew up studying ballet and modern dance in Michigan. Upon graduating from the University of Michigan with degrees in Dance (BFA) and Psychology (BA), she moved to Chicago to accept a full dance scholarship offered to her from the Lou Conte Dance Studio/Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. Professionally, she has performed in Thodos Dance Chicago's New Dances Series and as a River North Chicago Dance Summer Apprentice.
While continuing to dance around the city, Sarah turned to other forms of exercise to stay in shape. She began practicing yoga and Pilates on a regular basis. She realized she had a passion for fitness that she wanted to share with others, so she became a NASM-certified personal trainer and women's fitness specialist. Aside from personal training, she also teaches indoor cycling and TRX Suspension Training classes. In her free time, she enjoys golfing, reading, and downhill skiing. Sarah is excited to share her love of fitness with the Evolve clients!
