Sarah is a Charleston native and has been a presence in the food scene in the city for over sixteen years. She started honing her skills in hospitality front of house in high school and college in some of Charleston's most iconic restaurants. After graduating from the College of Charleston Sarah did the unexpected: she started working in the kitchen. Following her two year stint at Peninsula Grill, she walked through the doors at Fig where she worked her way from prep cook to sous chef over the course of her six year tenure. WIth the blessings of her James Beard award winning mentors, Sarah started to channel her energy in making a name for herself as a chef. With her creative take on pop ups and group dining as well as her ability to fill the void for a refined, freelance chef in the southeast she has become a force to be reckoned with. Over the past three years Sarah has become known not only for her cuisine, but for her trend setting social media influence, philanthropy, and a voice for inclusion and equality within the restaurant industry.
