Sara came to Spokane and taught at Gonzaga before she moved onto KPBX, where she served as Morning Edition host. Returning to teaching, she worked in Applied Education at Spokane Community College and in 2000 moved to Spokane Falls Community College where she has been ever since: teaching drama and communication classes, plus directing once a year. At Spokane Civic Theatre, Sara directed A Perfect Ganesh and Dancing at Lughnasa. She has acted in The Foreigner and Macbeth. Someday she would like to direct The Dresser downstairs in the Firth Chew Studio Theatre.
