After earning her Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Furman University where she was valedictorian of her class, graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa and subsequently receiving a Masters of Government Administration with a major in Public Financial Management from the University of Pennsylvania, Sarah worked for over 10 years in the field of Information Technology designing Financial Systems for private and government organizations.
As people so often do after a decade or so of working in the corporate world, Sarah wondered if there might be more to life. So she withdrew from the workaday lifestyle, started a consultancy business and eased into family life – eventually having three babies all born naturally at a local birthing center. All three children spent their first night at home with their parents.
She’s living proof of the old adage, “you’ll do for love what you’ll never do for money”. Prior to the birth of her first child, Sarah began educating herself by all means possible on matters of naturally raising children with full health in a world seemingly bent on preventing such an achievement. The more she discovered, the more she learned that others wanted access to the same information too. After eight years of serving as a local Chapter Leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation, she began writing a blog at www.TheHealthyHomeEconomist.com which now contains more than a thousand posts, recipes and videos. It’s become a major undertaking and, for the first-time reader, may well appear to be a daunting body of knowledge to encounter.
In an effort to make the information more accessible to those first-time readers (as well as anyone else who wants to focus on particular areas), Sarah has started gathering posts on particular subjects together and, combining them with additional research, is publishing them as books. These books are in a series called The Healthy Home Economist Guide and are first made available in electronic format, then published as paperbacks.
