Ben and Sarah met in 1987 in Mrs. Schmidt's Kindergarten class at Wolters Elementary in Fresno, California. Though it was far from love at first, or second, or even third sight, they have enjoyed growing up together and having so many shared life experiences.
They officially began dating in 2000 when they were both Freshman in the Smittcamp Family Honors College at California State University, Fresno, and they got married in 2006. After living in New York and Maryland for seven years, they are happy to be back in California.
Their daughter Mackenzie was born in 2012.
