Sarah Starpoli grew up in bucolic Poughkeepsie, New York and currently calls Manhattan her home. Her mantra: “Get out of your own way!” keeps Sarah on a path of upward mobility achieving personal goals and accomplishments.
Sarah counts her personal fitness transformation through boxing and a life-changing adventure by herself to India to be among her greatest successes. She is forever grateful to Heather Hardy, Gleason’s trainer, friend and role model, for motivating and pushing her forward through this journey!
Sarah was raised by her mother who is her hero. She, like her mom, radiates positivity, encouragement and a thirst for personal challenges.
Working in human resources at Etsy.com, Sarah helps to ensure that all employees are content and successful. Etsy encourages employees to volunteer and give back to the community, which makes her participation in this event at Gleason's all the more exciting.
Additionally, Sarah is a talented singer and musician and is even a member of an all-girl accordion orchestra.
