Prior to transitioning to higher education full-time, she taught in the public schools of Darlington County School District for twenty-five years.

Sara comments, "Burry Bookstore is one of my favorite book signing sites. Burry's represents home, Hartsville, and home is where my heart is! Emily Phillips and the Burry Bookstore staff always make my book signing event special. Thank you, folks! I would also like for our Hartsville family to know that Absolutely Adorable! is about the three children of our son Billy. Many have asked when Dr. Billy's Gram book was published to let you know. Well, this is it! Please come by Burry's and get a copy from our favorite bookstore!"
