Later moved to Kingsport, graduated from Dobyns-Bennett, Virginia Intermont, and The University of Tennessee.

Sasi worked at Mountain Region Family Medicine for 36 years. Sasi was a born again Christian and a devoted member of Calvary Baptist Church. She was an avid Tennessee Vols, Atlanta Braves, and Dobyns-Bennett fan. In her free time, she enjoyed, craft fairs and crafting with her Sis, weekend get- togethers with her Brunch Bunch, many of whom she had known her whole life. She also enjoyed reading, watching Hallmark Christmas movies and Murder, She Wrote, and family vacations to Oak Island, NC.
