  • Sara is a freelance editor for Static Media.
  • She previously spent fourteen years as a book editor in the publishing industry, working with such authors as Nick Petrie, David Joy, and New York Times Best Sellers' Stuart Woods.
  • Her current work at Health Digest is informed by her longtime passion for self-help and healthy living.


Sara has worked as a professional editor for fifteen years, many of which were spent in book publishing at G. P. Putnam's Sons, an imprint of Penguin Random House. In that capacity she edited both non-fiction and fiction, with an emphasis on mysteries and thrillers. Since joining Static Media in 2021 as an editor for Health Digest, she has turned her attention away from (fictional) crime in favor of helping people to live their best and healthiest lives by ensuring that the information in the news and features is clear, accurate, and engaging to read. When not sitting at her computer, Sara is an aficionado of ballroom dance, yoga, hiking, and saving scads of nutritious recipes on Pinterest.


Sara graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Wake Forest University with a bachelor's degree in English and History.
