Sabrina was born in Dubuque, IA on January 13, 1958 to Milton and Delores (Huber) Ost.  The family moved to North Dakota and in 1971, settled in Albert Lea. During her school years she played saxophone in the band and excelled at varsity sports including volleyball and softball.  She graduated from Albert Lea High School in 1976 and obtained an Associate Degree in Nursing from Rochester Community College.  Sabrina then went on to work at St. Marys Hospital in Rochester for several years as a surgical nurse.
