  • An Italian culinary school grad, Sara furthered her pasta knowledge by working at Eataly in Los Angeles — an experience that continues to inform her articles on Italian cuisine.
  • As a food, health, and lifestyle journalist, Sara has interviewed public figures like Mandy Moore, Deepak Chopra, and Jeremy Irons.
  • Her favorite part about writing is the responses she gets from readers — she's met several buddies to practice Italian with thanks to an article she wrote about learning Italian online, for example.


Sara has written professionally since 2014 about food, travel, and healthy living for the Los Angeles Times, goop, Thrillist, Heated from Medium x Mark Bittman, the Dallas Morning News, Brit + Co, and more. When she's not at her desk, she's working with her hands: teaching cooking classes and hosting pop-up dinners in Florence, Italy. She currently works as an editor for Mashed News.


Sara has a bachelor's degree in print and digital journalism from the University of Southern California and a career certificate in Italian cooking from the Apicius International School of Hospitality in Florence, Italy.
