Sabrina authored a research paper on rehabilitation for Tommy John Surgery in a baseball pitcher and another on Yoga and Low Back Pain.

She competed in soccer and basketball, but readily admits that she enjoys playing all sports. Sabrina has run the Marine Corps Marathon, a number of half marathons, and played basketball in the wheelchair basketball tournament against the wheelchair basketball team of Baltimore Maryland (Ravens).
