About Sarah

Sarah studied illustration at Mass Art in Boston, and at UNH in Durham she received her BA in studio arts and Classics. 

While continuing to practice her art and writing, she started a business as a boat painter, refinishing old wooden boats, subcontracting for boat yards as well as working on the water.  
In 2008 she studied to become a massage therapist, and since then has had a full time private practice, specializing in working with elders, in memory care, nursing homes and with home bound seniors. She is trained in Shiatsu, deep tissue, a variety of energy work and body based trauma recovery. She increasingly incorporates her creative and dream work into her health practice, with the goal of helping others find their own creative voice. 

She studied Shamanism in a two year apprenticeship with Dory Cote, and continued shamanic studies on her own, as well as studying with Capacitar, a body-based trauma healing organization that focuses on community support and healing. 

When COVID disrupted the field of massage therapy in 2020, she went back to her former occupation as an independent contractor painting wooden boats. 

When not writing books or working, Sarah volunteers, and with her partner plays with and works on  (not necessarily in that order) old boats, old bicycles, old motorcycles, an old motor home, and old dogs. 

She lives in Midcoast Maine.
