Sarah grew up in the once sleepy little town of Eugene, Oregon. Residing just a short drive from the ocean, mountains and rivers, a passion for the outdoors coursed through her veins. Shortly after graduating from Dental Hygiene school in 2002, she and her husband, Justin, relocated with their two young daughters to Bend, Oregon where Sarah enjoyed caring for rural ranching communities and mountain locals. They could be found every weekend snow-boarding the beautiful slopes of Mt. Bachelor. Their daughters began skiing as soon as they could walk!
When circumstances provided relocation to San Diego, CA, the McComas family jumped on this new adventure. This is where Sarah’s daughters were introduced to softball and surfing. Practicing Dental Hygiene in San Diego within beach communities proved to be fun and relaxing, but the fast paced chaos of California life with its lack of seasons and mountains soon began to drain the family. They started their quest to secure a life in Colorado, a dream of Sarah’s since high school.
Finally settling down in Colorado in 2012, Sarah and her family felt like they had found the perfect state to call home, with the beauty of a mountain setting as well as abundant sun, they put down roots within the Boulder community. Sarah’s daughters currently study at the highly esteemed Niwot High School.
Sarah is passionate about oral and whole-body health. She loves her field and thrives in an environment where she can build relationships and grow in skill and knowledge. When an opportunity arose to join the top-notch, first-class team under Dr. Niles, Sarah was all in!
When not thoroughly enjoying her days with team Niles, she can be found on the softball field, slopes, hiking or relaxing in the beautiful Colorado sun with a good luck.
