Her first book, Void If Detached: Seeking Modern Spirituality Through My Father's Old Sermons, received numerous literary awards including a Nautilus. 

​While writing the book, Sarah found herself curiously drawn to One Spirit Interfaith Seminary, where she eventually enrolled to pursue the addition of Reverend to her name as well, officially entering the (proverbial) family business, with a focus on animal chaplaincy through an interfaith/interspiritual lens.

Not surprisingly, the study of the world's great faith traditions greatly increased Sarah's craving for more writing. Her latest book, Spiritual Rebel: A Positively Addictive Guide to Deeper Perspective and Higher Purpose, was released into bookstores June 11 2019 by Monkfish Publishing.

Sarah's writing has also appeared in Tricycle, Spirituality & Health, Common Ground, Light of Consciousness, mindbodygreen, Shatterproof, Elephant Journal, Oracle 20/20, and more.  See all book reviews, podcasts, articles, and media >

As a member of One Spirit Interfaith Seminary's academic staff, Spiritual Directors International, and several recovery communities, Sarah seeks to help others connect with the higher power of their own understanding, in whatever way is meaningful to each. Passionate about the world’s great faith traditions, Sarah is a graduate of One Spirit and has studied at Chicago Theological Seminary, Emerson Theological Institute, Chopra Center, and Omega Institute. A retreat-junkie, Sarah has retreated and workshopped with a wide range of teachers, including Diane Berke, David Wallace, Deepak Chopra, Mirabai Starr, Krishna Das, Sister Shivani, Rabbi David Ingber, Brett Bevell, James French, Steven D. Farmer, Phyliss Curott, James French, and Andrew Vidich. 

​Especially interested in the intersection of spiritual values with animal welfare, Sarah is a fierce advocate for all creatures and currently serves as an animal chaplain.
