Sarah received her BA in Classical Archaeology from Dartmouth College in 2004. In 2005, she moved to Knoxville to become a GIS technician and field archaeologist for the University of Tennessee's Archaeological Research Lab before moving on to complete the Post-Baccalaureate program at the University of Pennsylvania. She has conducted fieldwork in the Southeastern USA, Pompeii, the Nemea Valley, the eastern Corinthia, and East Lokris.  Her dissertation addresses the relationship between imports and ancient trade in Greece during the period from 1300 to 900 B.C.E.

After graduation, Sarah accepted a tenure-track offer from the University of Notre Dame as an Assistant Professor in their Department of Classics. Her dissertation, titled "Trade, Imports, and Society in Early Greece (1400-700 BCE)", was advised by Ian Morris, Josh Ober, and Richard Martin.
