Sarah is originally from California but moved to Colorado when she was six years old. “I feel like a native,” she said. Her educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Integrative Physiology from the University of Colorado-Boulder and a Masters in Physician Assistant Studies from Colorado-CHA/PA Program.
Sarah is an NCCPA certified Physician Assistant that has been in practice for six years. “The last two years I spent at Park Ridge Family Medicine practicing family medicine with an emphasis in women’s care, behavioral health, and chronic disease,” Sarah said. Prior to that, she spent four years at East West Health Centers practicing Internal Medicine.
She is excited about the comradery that exists at RVU. “Everyone here has been so welcoming and you can tell it is a tight-knit community of people. There is a lot of support and enthusiasm about the addition of a PA program, which I think is wonderful,” she said.
Sarah is married and has two daughters. “Our children keep us busy with their activities but we also enjoy spending as much time as we can outdoors and traveling,” she said. “Our next trip is to Italy and France, in the summer of 2018!”
A little-known fact about Sarah is that she is a first generation citizen. “I was born here in the United States but my parents are both originally from Eritrea, east Africa,” Said Sarah. “I have been to Eritrea twice and plan to take our children when they get older.”
