She completed her undergraduate degree at The Ohio State University. She then moved to the Dayton region to complete her advanced practice degree at Wright State University.
She has a special interest in caring for pediatric patients with epilepsy and headaches but she sees patients with a variety of other neurologic diagnoses as well.
Sara’s favorite thing about working with kids is their fresh perspective on life, their resiliency and desire to learn and be better. The excitement they have for each new day and working with their families to improve their quality of life provides an overwhelming sense of joy and satisfaction.

I enjoy helping patients feel better and improving their quality of life. Neurological disorders such as epilepsy, chronic headaches/pain, Tourette's etc. can be so overwhelming and life changing. It is rewarding to help patients and their families overcome the challenges related to their diagnosis and live life to their fullest.
Dayton Children's truly cares about the kids and the families that walk through the door. The staff fully support Dayton Children's mission and it feels like a home away from home.
we are a free standing pediatric hospital with awesome staff who come to work because we enjoy providing excellent health care to our pediatric community.
