Sarah started her professional career as a civil engineer, but after having children she reduced her work load to part-time and took on more work-from-home projects. Multiple military moves have made her a landlord with property in multiple states. She also volunteers as a trained financial counselor through her church and the local military base.
The majority of her work focuses on education and personal finance topics such as real estate, retirement, credit cards, mortgages, and college savings. Many of her presentations on preparing to buy a house have become the basis of her financial writing. She has a portfolio of hundreds of articles that have been sold to educational websites, crafting magazines, and a variety of commercial websites.
