Sarah is a single mother, who survived 10 years of Domestic Violence at the hands of her ex-husband.

Since escaping her abusive marriage, she has become a certified domestic violence counselor at the Prudence Crandall Center in New Britain, Connecticut.

She has a passion for speaking out about Domestic Violence in an effort to inspire, educate, strengthen, and unify all people. She is proud to be a living example of the fact that people CAN change their lives. People CAN flourish in the wake of Domestic Violence.
