Channel 3 News Reporter

    Sara joined the Channel 3 News team in June 2012. You’ll see her reporting on stories all around Northeast Ohio, including her hometown of Akron.

    She’s glad to be back at WKYC where she first worked as an intern during her college years at Ohio University. She graduated summa cum laude from the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism. She also studied in international business in Turin, Italy.

    Prior to her return to Northeast Ohio, Sara spent three years reporting and filling in at the anchor desk in Knoxville, Tennessee. The Tennessee Associated Press named Sara one of the state's best TV reporters and honored her feature reporting as well. Sara got her start in television at WOUB in Athens, Ohio.

    She is a proud graduate of Manchester High School and lover of the Portage Lakes where she’s spent most of her life. While it’s hard to trade the southern sun and the Smoky Mountains for snow, she’s looking forward to being closer to friends, family and even Cleveland sports.

    Sara loves how every day of work at WKYC is different, getting to meet people and experience new places. At home, she looks for new restaurants, recipes, movies and yoga classes to fill her calendar.
