Sarah is pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Upper Iowa University and will graduate in 2012 with hopes of continuing onto her Masters Degree in Social Work through the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She would eventually like to be an individual and family therapist, and integrate Heartland’s animals into her therapy. After realizing how truly therapeutic it has been for her to simply be around the amazing animals at Heartland, she felt she had to find a way to share that gift with others. Her passion in life has always been working with animals, and when she found Heartland, and met the animals for the first time, she knew this was the place she wanted to be. Sarah lives with her fiancé Aaron, and their 20 year old cat, Cleopatra.
