Personality & Traits

General Overview Feisty, tough, great sense of humor. No-nonsense when it comes to her job.
Strengths & Weaknesses She is loyal to her friends and co-workers. She knows her job and the physicians she works with so well that she can anticipate their needs before they ask. She loves her job and would work 24/7 if she could. She works best under pressure and is at her calmest in stressful situations.
Ambitions To be the best nurse she can be and to be an asset to the physicians who rely on her. She has no ambition for promotion and has turned down several because they would mean she would become an administrator and she hates the thought of not working where the action is.
Hobbies & Interests Poker, Craps...basically anything bettable.

Personal History Her father owned a restaurant in San Francisco and her mother was an elementary school teacher. Sara's father spent the first 13 years of her life trying to groom her to take over his restaurant when he retired but it wasn't in the cards. She had no interest in the business. She spent most of her free time volunteering at San Francisco General Hospital and, when she graduated high school she enrolled in college with a nursing major. Upon graduating as a Registered Nurse, she went to work for SFGH and worked her way through the specialties....excelling in Emergency Medicine and Surgical. In her off hours she earned her Masters in Medical Administration. After 10 years as a civilian nurse she joined Starfleet. She spent 12 years on various ships then took a position as instructor at Starfleet Medical. But after 8 years she missed patient care so she put in for re-assignment and was shipped to the Starbase Manheim in the outer reaches of the Delta Quadrant. The base was taken over by the Voth and she and several others from the base managed to escape on a privateer's ship.
