Sarah is a Lubbock native who enjoys advising Honors students and assisting them to realize their academic and personal potential, beginning in the First-Year Experience Program, which she oversees. She also coordinates the Honors Book Club, where students meet to read for enjoyment and discuss readings in an informal setting. She loves working with Honors students and being employed at TTU, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Horticulture in 2003.
Sarah enjoys reading British classics and mysteries, watching Masterpiece Theatre, and spending time with her family. She is married to Nathan Timmons, an alumnus of the Honors College and of the Texas Tech graduate English program, who currently teaches in the IB program at Lubbock High School. They have an impossibly adorable son, Adam, who currently enjoys building, then destroying, structures in his sandbox, and naming and creating elaborate histories for the birds and insects he discovers in his backyard.
