After graduation, Sara taught English in rural Thailand with her husband. Upon returning to the Northwest, Sara attended the UW School of Law, where she served as Moot Court Honor Board Vice President of In-House Competitions, as well as an Articles Editor for the Washington Law Review. Throughout law school, Sara competed on a national mock trial team, becoming a quarterfinalist at the National Trial Competition during her third year. Sara also received the Judge John C.
