The trades are a great way to make a living. But for Sarah, it completely changed her life. As a teen, she loved making jewelry. But it wasn’t until she took her first welding class, that she realized the true potential she had within her. Now, she helps create stunning pieces of metal art, while inspiring others to follow their dreams.

She was born in Colorado and grew up in a farm where she first studied in a jewelry program. After working as a tiler with her dad she moved to Austin and got a degree in metal arts and black smithing as well as a certificate in welding.

In a male-dominated industry, Sarah wants to inspire little girls and older women to pursue their passion.
