Her dream is to become a pediatrician like her mother.
Sarah was a competitive gymnast for six years. She believes this is where she learned to be motivated and dedicated. As her gymnastics career came to an end she knew she didnít want to leave the sport forever, so when offered a job teaching Pre-school gymnastics classes she took the job eagerly. As a instructor she learned the passion she had for working with children. Her dream for becoming a pediatrician became ever more clear to her.
Sarah has been actively involved in the Omaha area. She participates in Creighton Universityís Habitat for Humanity where she is not afraid to get a little bit dirty for a good cause. She has worked with many charitable organizations in the Metro area including; Womenaide, Junior League of Omaha, and Midlands Literacy Council but her main focus is on a non-profit organization called Reach out and Read. Reach out and Read promotes early childhood literacy by making books available to all children in all socioeconomic situations. Sarah volunteers her time at local physicians clinics reading to children in the waiting rooms. Sarah organized her own book drive and collected over three hundred books for the Reach Out and Read program that were distributed throughout the Omaha area. As Miss Nebraska Teen USA she plans to concentrate on promoting early childhood literacy and introducing people to the Reach out and Read program.
