Sarah earned her doctorate degree in medical biophysics at the age of 26.

As a scientist both by training and by nature, Sarah is deeply interested in understanding how the foods we eat interact with our gut barriers, immune systems, and hormones to influence health. She is also interested in the impact of lifestyle factors like sleep, stress and activity.
Her passion for scientific literacy and her talent for distilling scientific concepts into straightforward and accessible explanations form the foundation of her work and her dedication to improving public health. Learn more by checking out Sarah’s website, podcast and books.
Sarah is as personable as she is smart. She's able to read medical research and understand exactly what it's saying and then translate it for the rest of us so that we can use it to our best benefit. You are going to love her story, as well as the things we discuss about the gut.
