Sarah was born and raised in Plano, Texas. She enjoyed competing in multiple sports growing up, but in high school played volleyball year-round. She always knew she wanted to pursue a career in the medical field, and she worked extremely hard in school to graduate at the top of her class. She attended Austin College, in Sherman, Texas, where she played college volleyball while taking her pre-med curriculum. She also worked as an athletic trainer, which further ignited her interest in sports medicine and orthopedics.
In just three years, Sarah graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and a minor in Exercise Sports Science. Sarah then completed the Physician Assistant program at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, and graduated with a Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies. She then joined Kid’s First Pediatrics in Highland Village, and very much enjoyed her 11 years there.
Sarah has always strived to perform her best, in both academics and athletics. She enjoys teaching young student athlete’s how to fuel their body for both performance and injury prevention. She is delighted to join the Pediatric Sports and Spine Associates family and looks forward to helping children in our community live happy and healthier lives.
Sarah is a Physician Assistant certified by the National Commission of Physician Assistants and the Texas State board of Physician Assistant Examiners. She is a current member of the Texas Academy of Physician Assistants. Sarah practices under the direction of Dr. Roderick Capelo.
