After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at the University of Oregon, Sara joined Enterprise Rent-A-Car in their renowned management training program and worked her way up into a management role.

During her time at Enterprise, Sara returned to school online to obtain her Master’s degree.
