- "I know we're better than this. The only thing I'm not skeptical about is human nature. Our city has rallied before. In times of disaster, the best in people shines through. I believe that now more than ever."
- —Sarah about people's actions in the apocalypse

Convinced by her grandma who was a former Voodoo Mambo (female priest) in Haiti she could contact her parents by praying to voodoo gods. she soon found out that it wasn't true, and became an atheist.
Sarah grew up and went on to college, double majoring in Communication and Psychology with a minor in American Folklore, doing so in order to further her skeptic mind and use evidence to debunk claims of voodoo gods, and urban legends. This led her to create and host the "Supernatural Skeptics Guide to New Orleans" podcast and investigate supernatural and true crime regarding the history of New Orleans, while trying to debunk claims of voodoo gods, hauntings, and urban legends. She was hoping to win the Pulitzer Prize some day.
