Meet Sarah Batista, Founder and Creative Director


Sarah Batista is an award-winning TV journalist, entrepreneur, and speaker.  Before launching her film production company Stories to Inspire, she worked 10 years as a reporter and anchor in local television news. After years of covering bad news, the single mom flew the coop from WBTV in Charlotte, NC in 2013 to pursue her dream of documentary filmmaking. Leaving her comfort zone was one of the most difficult decisions she’s ever made.  She has since launched the She Flew the Coop movement which includes a series of videos, events, panel discussions and workshops focused on inspiring women and girls to step out of their comfort zone and pursue their dreams.

Join Our She Flew The Coop Movement

Also founded by Sarah Batista, She Flew The Coop is tribe of women (men welcome too) who understand that life is a journey. We are in various phases of “flying the coop” and leaving our comfort zone to pursue our dreams and goals. Some of us have already leaped, others are thinking about it and some of us just want to connect and support other women who’ve done so.

Together we are stronger.
