She was born as a third generation colonist on Daktara, a colony founded by the USS Columbus in 2289. The constellation class ship came to the rescue of an 'illegal' colony ship, but was badly damaged and unable to call for help. The amount of debris made the Federation believe the ship was lost.
The colonists under Zertog and the Federation crew under captain Edward Delvaux worked together and managed to get the colony going. She got a normal education, consisting of the normal lessons (reading, writing, science,...) as well as farming and hunting.
From the age of 14, all children started their education onboard of the Colombus, still in stable orbit (cannibalising parts to keep other systems operational had left only 4 decks habitable). Sarah, already being one of the best hunters, choose security. After 80 years, and without warpcore, they didn't have enough power to operate the phasers, so they had to learn with simulations. This was the first time she got her hands on a phaser. because they had only a few left, and not that many power cells, they had made bullet riffles. Sarah, as a hunter, had only used one of those.
She was the best in the security devision and the second best overall, after Andrea Zertog. There had always been some friction between Andrea and Sarah, speciall since they had a fight over a boy when they were both 13, and this didn't make things better. It came to a few violent encounters, mostly alcohol induced (they brewed their own liquor).
At the age of 15, while being part of a wolf hunting group (these wolves were doglike creatures, fairly intelligent, who had caused trouble during the first years of the colony), she was attacked by two of the creatures. She killed one, but the other one got her. She had severe wounds, but the others managed to get her back to the colony, where she was operated. She survived, but they had to remove her uterus due to an infection.
When she was 17, a nova class scout stumbled upon the colony, and contact with the Federation was re-established after 86 years. The colonists were surprised at the technological advances that were made, specially replicators and holodecks. New colonists arrived and Daktara III applied for UFP membership. Sarah, Andrea and some others left to go to starfleet. Sarah tried the academy, but failed the entrance exam. The only good thing was that Andrea failed as well. They both wanted to be in starfleet and enlisted, Sarah in security. A lot of the things she learned, she knew already, so she took things easy. But most things she knew were on older systems and she barely managed to get through the course. She was assigned on the Endeavour as master at arms.
During her first shore leave, she went back home. In a bar, she met Andrea Zertog. A few tauntings flew between the women, and then Sarah pushed against Andrea's drink when she wanted to take a sip. She thought it was the local alcohol, but it turned out to be coffee. Andrea was taken to the hospital with burn wounds, and she filed a complaint against Sarah.
Kuren Nilas, the current chief security of the Endeavour, was also on Daktara, because of a meteor storm that had knocked out the base where he was following a zero-g course. He managed to get Sarah out of jail, and after calling in a few favours, he managed to get her back to the Endeavour. But with a reprimand in her record, she knew that promotions would not come fast. She threw herself on her duties, and managed to get two promotions in the next two years, wich was still a lot slower then other NCOs.
After those two years, she got a transfer to the USS Atlantis, the flagship of the 14th fleet.
She's very outgoing, and makes friends easy. But keeping them is another thing, as she has regular mood swings. She will never admit it, but the removal of her uterus has affected her a great deal. She has an aversion against Andrea Zertog and will do anything to avoid her, but she's confident that she can win a confrontation. She still has the colony's mind frame towards sex (they had to mix partners a lot during the first years to keep a valid genetic variety, and kept it that way), leading to confrontations in boot camp.
After the accident with Andrea Zertog, she had done a lot of thinking, and she really tried to better her life.
