Sarah was born and raised in the Northwest region of the United States; she lived much of her life in a rural area on the Pacific Ocean. Her great love for nature taught her to explore and be a free thinker. She was inspired and influenced by natural healing methods and ancient wisdom and the-refore decided to become an osteopath.
She graduated from the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in 1983. From Dr. Viola Frymann, she learned what osteopathy is. The specialisation school took her to Southwest, where she met Dr. Robert Fulford for the first time at Tucson General Hospital, and he introduced her to Dr. Paula Eschtruth. After the internship, she opened an osteopathic clinic and Dr. Fulford was her mentor until she decided to return to live on the North Pacific coast.
She has many years of experience with Dr. Fulford's treatment principles and methods and has been teaching in the United States and around the world with Dr. Eschtruth since 2010.
