While attending UNL, she worked as a research assistant in both the Behavioral Genetics Lab and the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior. She has also worked at Boys Town’s Residential Treatment Center as a Behavioral Health Technician.
Sara is extremely easy to talk to. I do not find that with a lot of people. I have never really gotten that bond with another psychiatrist, but I feel that way with her. I click with her. She takes into consideration my feedback and she is easy to work with. She listens to what I have to say, and we work well together.— Linda R.
