Welch’s Age, Family, and Childhood

The Equity Partner at Marrow, Sarah hasn’t revealed her birth details and age. She was born in Michigan and is in her thirties. She is American by nationality and belongs of Caucasian descent.

Her father’s name is Steven who owned a resort in Jamaica. Sarah spent her childhood in Jamaica and Michigan. She often used to visit her father’s resort and spent time with the chefs in the kitchen. She used to learn new things to cook as her friends in the neighborhood also knew how to cook and she wanted to be better than them.

“That was a huge influence — learning that people my age in other countries are self-sufficient in terms of feeding themselves. They go to the little shop up the street, they buy what they need, they take that home, they cook it for themselves. Sometimes one of the kids didn’t have the financial ability to do it, and so (the others would) share with each other. And so there were a lot of early lessons for me of equity and sharing and fairness and food.”

Her mother advised her to study business before going into the creative field like culinary arts. So, she attended Michigan State University and earned a degree in hospitality management. She then moved to New York and enrolled at French Culinary Institute.

After a year and a week of their engagement, Sarah shared a photo of the couple and stated that they forgot their engagement anniversary. She wrote:

Yep. It’s been a year since this guy asked me to marry him. Sure, we both forgot our engagement anniversary a week ago – our love never really focused on dates and presents and fluff. But I am not exaggerating when I say I am the luckiest woman to have found you @cameronrolka. I’m even luckier that you love the mess that is me. I could say “I can’t wait to marry you” but, I don’t really give a shit – loving you, being with you, having you as a partner – that’s enough for now. Here’s to yet another year of engagement. COVID be damned, we will have a banger of a wedding one day. Til then, I’ll continue to cherish you, cause you’re the absolute best. Happy non-niversary.
