Through her dissertation research and her involvement with the Aging with Pride Study, the largest national study of LGBTQ older adults, Sarah has explored how the social networks, experiences, and lives of bisexual individuals inform their health and well-being across the life course. She has also explored how intimate and sexual relationships inform older women’s experiences of their bodies, aging, and identities. Sarah’s scholarly work is informed by critical feminist and life course perspectives, which she uses to inform her teaching in multigenerational practice and practice with older adults, social welfare history and policy, and social research.
