Kaufmann is no amateur to cheese carving; she is a team player who loves to carve mascots, football heroes and local attractions. In November 2011, Sarah exhibited her talents in a Washington, D.C. Harris Teeter by carving a tribute to Wounded Warrior Project™.

Sarah loves to share her passion for cheese, so please visit the Morrocroft Village Harris Teeter to take your picture with Sarah and speak to her about her unique profession while you sample and shop.
