Sara Whitman is an entertainment news writer for HollywoodLife's Los Angeles newsroom. She covers anything and everything celebrity, but her favorite people to write about are Taylor Swift and the Kardashians, ironically. Sara got her start in the entertainment industry as a production assistant at Entertainment Tonight in 2019 upon graduating from Hofstra University with her master's degree in journalism. She quickly returned to her writing roots and worked at two outlets before finding her home at HollywoodLife. Sara's idols include Hilary Duff, Taylor Swift, and Carrie Underwood, and she is motivated by a quote from an 11-year-old Hilary: "Follow your dreams, you know?"
