Sabine graduated from the Ohio State University with BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Microbiology. Following graduation, Sabine worked at Chemical Abstracts Service in various management and leadership roles before retiring after 31 years. Sabine is hoping to learn more about Cerebral Palsy by serving on the Pedal with Pete Foundation Board of Directors as chair of the research and education committee. She first volunteered in 2019 as part of the cerebral palsy grant review committee overseeing the grant review process and educating the community about cerebral palsy.
Sabine first learned about cerebral palsy when her children were taking swim lessons at McConnell Heart Health Center. A boy with CP was in the therapy pool during their lessons. She learned about Pedal with Pete through a yard sign for the annual bike fundraiser in the front yard of a house on her walking route. Sabine initially wondered if Pete Zeidner was the boy from McConnell but learned otherwise after doing some internet research. It turns out that Mimi Singh’s son Andy lives in that house. She realized that long after her children were done with swim lessons.
Sabine is also keeping busy volunteering as a mentor to undergraduate and graduate students at Ohio State, as a member of the advisory council for the department of Microbiology at Ohio State, and as a future Franklin County Master Gardener Volunteer. Sabine and her husband Dana have a daughter and son who live Columbus. They like to travel and watch their two granddogs PeeDee, a corgi, and Charley, a puggle.
