Sarah was born in New Mexico and has lived in the Albuquerque area since 2017. She spent the first seven years of her legal career in New York City and New Jersey. Sarah clerked for a State and then Federal District Court Judge before becoming a litigator and supervisor for New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services. She also served as a Director on the Board of Restore NYC, a non-profit organization serving survivors of human trafficking. When she returned to New Mexico, Sarah practiced as an associate at BTB, then served as a law clerk for Court of Appeals Judge Linda M. Vanzi and Supreme Court Justice Judith K. Nakamura. Sarah used her most recent clerkships to develop her appellate writing skills and enhance her appellate practice. Outside of her work, Sarah enjoys hiking and running in the mountains of New Mexico, making music with her family and friends, poetry, dancing, and cooking.
