Sarah focuses her practice on estate planning, business planning, and real estate. She assists individuals and business owners by implementing a plan for their finances, healthcare, and legacies in the event of their disability or death. Much of her practice involves the drafting of wills, trusts, deeds, and business agreements. Sarah’s clients seek her counsel throughout all phases of life – from the humble beginnings of their careers and families, through retirement and beyond.

Sarah attended the College of Wooster on a full writing scholarship. Always in search of a story, she often found herself in surprising conversations with surprising people, including poets in rural Mexico, religious leaders in Ukraine, and businesspeople from all over the world. She earned collegiate honors on her capstone writing project, a collection of persona poems. Sarah now takes pleasure in having meaningful conversations with her clients and drafting documents that will play an integral role in their legacies.

    I am from Bucyrus, Ohio. As is the case with most natives of my hometown, I know a lot about bratwurst and very little about hockey. I now reside in Northwest Ohio with my husband, raising our four small children.
