Biography

While still in prep school, Sarah was bit by the acting bug at a very young age. When her drama teacher caught her cutting across his lawn in an effort not to be late for field hockey practice, he told her to skip practice and join the cast of "Richard III," and thus began her adoration of acting.

Sarah decided to take her love for this craft and educate herself by double majoring in English and Theatre at Hamilton College, studying theatre abroad in London and Oxford during her junior year, and, after graduating magna cum laude from Hamilton, went on to study at Yale Drama school. Her passion for learning about the arts was supported by her parents; her mother, the Chairwoman of the English Department at the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Greenwich, CT, and her father, an accomplished painter. Her education and natural talent clearly paid off.

In addition to starring on USA Network's "Suits" playing the role of Donna, she has appeared in numerous TV series such as "Law and Order," "Six Feet Under," "Brothers & Sisters," "Samantha Who?," "Without A Trace," "CSI: Miami," and "Bones," and feature films including: "Four Single Fathers" and "Falling For Grace," along with countless professional stage productions like "Gemini" and "As You Like It."

In addition to her acting roles on television, Sarah is an ambassador for the Alzheimer's Association and consistently speaks on the matter. Sarah has hosted their annual Sardi's event three years in a row and presented at the organization's final Sardi's event in March 2016. Sarah currently resides on both east and west coasts with her husband and two daughters and travels back and forth to Toronto for work.
