Sarah Quinata was born and raised in a small town in Connecticut, where she volunteered at her local nursing home. This ignited her passion for helping older adults and recreation. Sarah followed her passion 2,000 miles away from her home town to the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She is part of the UNO gerontology class of 2021. Her concentration is in healthy aging and she hopes to go into recreation once she graduates. When she is not at school, she enjoys running her own photography business and trying new restaurants with her husband.
