Standing at 6 feet, 1 inch, Sara was the tallest contestant among the Finalists on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 6. It was a talent scout who encouraged Sara to audition for the show, but during the semifinals, judge Jay Manuel addressed his concern regarding Sarah's height. Jay was worried that Sara might not be able to get a lot of modeling jobs, as designers usually do not make clothes for someone who is as tall as she. Supermodel Tyra Banks defended Sara, but still admitted that the average model stands between 5 feet, 9 inches and 5 feet, 11 inches. Nevertheless, Sara made it to the Finals, and even though she didn't have any modeling experience before the show, she was able to impress the judges with her natural talent. She worked her way up to the Top 4, and some of her best work include her runway shows and the CoverGirl commercial. There were times that her passion for modeling was questioned, which often frustrated Sara, who insisted that she was just as passionate as the other girls. Sara became the tenth finalist eliminated when the judges felt that she was not good enough to be placed in the Top 3.
Since appearing on the show, Sara has pursued her modeling career by working with both NEXT Model Management and Elite Models. She has also graced the cover of Engaged! Magazine, in addition to having a spread there. After getting married and moving to Washington, D.C., she took up a job as a summer associate for the international law firm Hogan Lovells.
