Hi, I’m Sarah, the blogger behind Pain & Progress.

I’m a lot of things, but a pretty decent summary of my titles are: dog mama, coffee and tea lover, bookworm, writer, friend, musician, big sister, aspiring minimalist, girlfriend, social media aficionado, and foodie.

I am an enneagram Enthusiast (7w8), a former ENTP now ENFJ, and graduated with my B.A. summa cum laude with honors at 20 years old because for most of high school and college I was a nerd with no social life. Now, I’m regaining a tiny social life with some amazing people, and working from home with my pup.


Let’s build something together.
