writer + podcaster + speaker

Hi! I’m Sarah, and I’m passionate about building community, creating real connections, and the power of creativity. I believe great things happen at the intersection of passion and purpose.

I live in Northern Virginia with my husband (and college sweetheart) Dan, our three kids, and our Labrador/Golden mix, Beatrice. I love black coffee and drink multiple cups a day, I believe in leggings as pants, and I think the morning is the best part of the day.

I’m passionate about the power of connection. I believe the key to a happy and fulfilling life depends on our connections to ourselves, others, and something bigger. Through my writing, blogging, podcast, and vlogs, I explore the concept of connection and what it means to live the bigger life.

To connect with me, read my blog, listen to a podcast episode, watch a video, and be sure to email me and tell me about yourself.

power of connection

here's are my daily connection practices

Daily Exercise

I love exercise, and it’s my daily habit. Each week I teach several group fitness classes, and I also exercise on my own. I love lifting weights, yoga, and walking my dog.


Organizing is self-care for me. I connect to my space when it’s neat and organized and clutter free.


I believe in the power of mediation to calm our thoughts. I take a few minutes each day to meditate and connect back to myself.

Curating an Athleisure Wardrobe

Clothes are super important to me. I’ve always loved clothes, and I love styling myself in comfortable and put-together outfits.

Mindfulness Practice

I’m passionate about the power of mindfulness. Mindfulness is an everyday practice for  me, and I’m happier and more patient when I remember to stay in the moment.


I’ve been a writer since I was a little girl, and as an adult I’ve seen how writing is a powerful way to connect with others.

Podcast #272 // Joan Edwards Kay and Debbie Alsdorf on It’s Momplicated

I’m close with my mom, and my relationship with my mom is dear to me. But that doesn’t mean our relationship was always easy. It’s something we work at. As a mother myself, creating a solid relationship with my daughter (and my two boys!) is top of mind for me everyday. In today’s episode I talk with Debbie Alsdorf and Joan Edwards Kay about their new book, It’s Momplicated: Hope and Healing for Imperfect Daughters of Imperfect Mothers. Joan and Debbie share their stories about


what I do to take care of myself

Self care isn’t selfish. It’s imperative I take care good care of myself, so I can take care of my family. One of my most important values is giving to others, but I can’t give what I don’t have. Here are a few of my favorite ways to connect and take care of myself.

Hot Baths

I love to run a hot bath, pour in Epsom salts, drop in a bath bomb, and read Mindful Magazine.

Long Walks

Walking my dog, Bea, is one of my favorite ways to check back in with myself. I listen to a podcast or music while I mindfully put one foot in front of the other.


I love to read most anything. I usually have one fiction and one non-fiction book going at any one time. I also love Yoga Journal, Real Simple, and Mindful Magazine.

A Good Talk

Not a day goes by that I don’t call my mom. I Vox friends throughout the day. And Dan and I love weekend chats over hot coffee.
