“The simple truth is that my performance, understanding, ability to progress, and yes, my employment, have all dramatically improved with the guidance and support of Sara Mornell. I consistently look to her for coaching, and wisdom, and am always, ALWAYS, better for it.”

– Grey’s Anatomy, Little Fires Everywhere

Noah Centineo

“When I was younger I worked on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, I had a natural ability to perform and to act but I would never have been able to work on Network Television if it wasn’t for Sara. I owe so much to her not only as a teacher, coach and mentor but also as a friend. She is the derivative, she is the reason my career is where it is and why I’m so confident in where my career will go.”

Mekia Cox

“If you want one of those coaches/teachers who tears you down to try to lift you up, Sara is not that. Sara is someone who will continuously lift your spirits reminding you of all the positive attributes that make you uniquely you, all the while tearing down all of the negative habits that are holding you back. She sincerely cares about each and every actor/actress she works with. Working with her has been so helpful to my career. I cannot thank her enough for the positive impact she’s had on my life.”
– The Rookie, Chicago Med

Mohammad Jamal Deen

“During the process of preparing for my TED talk, Sara helped me find ways to truly reach an audience in the auditorium as well as the thousands of viewers watching worldwide. I’m in awe of Sara’s ability to work with diverse talents who seek her help.”
