Sara joined KTLA as a reporter in October 2011. Before she moved to L.A., Sara spent 11 years working as the weekend anchor for WTNH-TV in New Haven Conn. She earned awards for her work, including an Emmy nomination for her interview with a woman who survived an attack by serial killer Michael Ross. On 9/11, Sara was in New York City covering the terrorist attacks from lower Manhattan. She is as comfortable covering politicians and severe weather as she is entertainment and feature stories.

While working full time for the local affiliate, Sara also spent five years as a correspondent for “Health Corner,” a health show on Lifetime, hosted by Joan Lunden. Sara was honored with three Telly Awards for her outstanding coverage interviewing the nation’s top doctors on the latest medical breakthroughs while profiling celebrities sharing their personal health stories. In Connecticut, Sara also hosted several charitable events for children, veterans and animals.

Sara grew up in Vermont and attended the University of Vermont where she earned a bachelor’s degree in political science. She received her first big break in TV news as an intern for WCAX-TV in Burlington, Vt. Sara landed her first full-time job in Alpena, Mich., which at the time was a the second smallest TV market in the country. She worked her way up via several markets including Green Bay, Wis., and Albany, N.Y. Sara is thrilled to have the opportunity to work in the second largest market, among some of the best journalists in Southern California.

When she’s not working, Sara loves an adventure. She’s been bungee jumping, skydiving and scuba diving. She also backpacked through Europe, New Zealand and Australia and is excited to explore the West Coast.
