Sarah was born and raised in Reno. While earning her bachelors degree in Liberal Arts she worked in and fell in love with the hospitality industry. She wanted to be a jack of all trades, so she made it a personal goal to learn every position from front of house to back of house.
After college, she attended culinary school in Napa Valley, CA where she graduated at the top her class and then worked under the direction of some of the most talented and influential chefs in the industry - Cindy Pawlcyn, Kristopher Kostow and Thomas Keller. Sarah cultivated a diverse set of skills and was trained in both savory and pastry cooking. Although she enjoys both, she has a natural propensity for baking and enjoys the technical skill and problem solving involved.
Upon returning to her hometown, she opened Rabbit Hole Pie in 2018, sharing the kitchen with Hub Coffee Roasters in Reno. She then relocated to Seattle in 2020 and currently splits her time working for the Hitchcock Bakeshop on Bainbridge Island and making pies on the side.
