Sarah was born and raised in Westminster, Massachusetts, and left to study at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Development and Linguistics. She returned to Massachusetts and lives in Athol, where she raises her three sons and owns rental properties with her husband. She worked as a real estate and general law paralegal for 15 years, until she decided to pursue helping people buy and sell homes full-time. She has a passion for all aspects of real estate and property ownership and keeps a full toolbox in her car at all times “just in case” something needs to be fixed!
Sarah is a Licensed Construction Supervisor in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a proud member of the National and Massachusetts Associations of REALTORS®. She has a passionate interest in local, state, and national politics, and currently serves on the Government Affairs Committee at the REALTOR® Association of Central Massachusetts. She has also served on several boards in her town government.

Sarah loves boating and can be found kayaking or driving the family motor boats on Wyman’s Lake in Westminster, racing down the Miller’s River every April in Athol’s River Rat Race, or paddling Maine’s whitewater rapids whenever she can. Above all, Sarah loves spending time with her family and teaching her sons the “family business” of property ownership and management. She believes life begins at home, and that everyone deserves a home they love.
