Something you may not know about Sarah:

Sarah lived in Rennes, France for a semester while she attended Nazareth College for her first degree. At Nazareth, she majored in International Studies and French and minored in Economics. In the final semester of her senior year, Sarah had room for one more class in her schedule and having run out of economics courses to take, her academic advisor suggested that she might enjoy accounting.

After graduation, Sarah worked at a publishing company for two years but the seeds had been planted and she decided to return to college to pursue a degree in accounting. She still thinks back on meeting with her academic advisor and is grateful for the advice she received.
