Sarah Mervosh is a reporter at The Dallas Morning News.
She is committed to holding power to account and passionate about giving voice to the vulnerable. She specializes in stories about ordinary people who would not normally make the news.
Sarah has been a member of the paper's investigative team since 2017. Before that, she was an enterprise reporter, covered criminal courts and worked as a general assignment/criminal justice reporter focused on domestic violence.
Her work has spurred Dallas County officials to confiscate guns from domestic abusers and prompted a brokerage firm to drop its lawsuit against a 93-year-old with Alzheimer's disease. In 2015, her reporting exposed the Dallas County district attorney's secret stint in drug rehab and later helped reveal that the official was missing work to receive mental health treatment.
Sarah has also covered some of the biggest breaking news in Texas in recent years, including the 2016 Dallas police shooting that killed five officers and the 2013 fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.
Sarah joined The News in 2012, after graduating summa cum laude from the University of Notre Dame.
