Sara lives by her own personal mantra to make each day better than the last. With seemingly boundless energy, she tackles everything in life with optimism and has a zest for new experiences.
After graduating from her cosmetology classes in 2019, she took an interest in volunteering with Manitoba Mutts and fostering animals. Since then, she and her dog Hudson have fostered six dogs into their forever homes and they have no plans to slow down.
One day she hopes to travel the world, having already crossed off her list places such as Mexico, Florida, Scotland, Ireland, Paris, London, Italy, and Greece. Her ultimate destination getaway is anywhere with sandy beaches and balmy weather- full of sunshine, just like she is.
