Born in England or Ireland, sometime prior to 1993, Sapworthy attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where she was sorted into the Gryffindor House. She presumably excelled in the studies of divination and herbology, as she later wrote books on both subjects. Once she graduated from Hogwarts, Sapworthy became an aide to the International Quidditch Team, and a portrait of her was hung at Hogwarts.
