Having never physically played the game, Sara became involved with hockey at the young age of three when her older brother began to play. He played at the, then, home of her favorite team the Buffalo Sabres practice space. She and her father would watch them practice on a regular basis and even get a few high fives when they came off the ice. She grew up going to all of her brother’s game and long weekend tournaments and fell in love. Her other hobbies include motor racing and dancing.
