When asked the question, “Why Team IMPACT?” Sarah said:
As a parent and former student-athlete, there are very few things I’m more passionate about in my life than kids and sports.  To be able to dedicate myself to improving the lives of the bravest kids would be enough, but Team IMPACT goes beyond as we’re facilitating relationships that have an enormous impact on student-athletes as well.  Team IMPACT is the catalyst to bringing joy and human connection to both kids and student-athletes, as well as anyone who is lucky enough to witness this special clinical program.  It’s an honor to represent Team IMPACT and I hope to reach as many people as possible with this important work.
