A native Texan, Sarah was born in Dallas, high-tailed it to Houston at 6 weeks old (well, okay, her parents moved), and landed in Austin in 1988, where she has resided ever since. She joined Central Ceremonies in 1997 and has owned it since 1999. So, with over 20 years of experience creating rituals by handcrafting ceremonies, you might say this work is her calling.

Sarah is a graduate of St. Agnes Academy, The University of Texas, The LBJ School of Public Affairs, and Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where she was awarded the Newell Fellowship for academic and pastoral achievement. Her husband says she may not earn any more degrees.

Speaking of her husband, she’s been married to her best friend, Joe, since 1994. Together their greatest treasures are their two children and the tight-knit family they’ve created.

Sarah is a Ravenclaw who loves all sorts of mythology, historical fiction, collecting and connecting with people, hot tea, mountains, spin class and, of course, her blue Bianchi road bike.

Secret/fun fact: People are always surprised when they find out she is an introvert. No, really. She is.
