Definitely a visionary. I believed she had a purpose for doing what she did.

My mother used to tell me growing up, that some of the most intuitive individuals are also disturbed or troubled to some aspect. I think this theory personally fits with Sarah, who seems to have had a lot of disturbance in her life ( young Mitch, Fletcher, jerk step dad, etc.). I think she was intuitive, which would also explain the ability for her to have "visions" or spiritual experiences, in addition to being a visionary I guess you could say.

Imagination and vision must have gone hand in hand to ensure her survival. To learn skills such as that imagination must have not been the only thing that kept her going.

Great question! I think vision and imagination go hand in hand. But I believe you start out with imagination, once you let it free and never try to stay inside the box, you start to develop as a visionary and extend your horizon with a tinge of love for exploration and curiosity. I think that was her case and that is why she seems like both.
This is a really beautiful thought. I have to agree with you on this

I think she was visionary and imgainative as others have said.

She was possessed by the knowledge of an ancestral spirit, and that's what gave her the survival skills and intellect she needed.

It is only vision that can be accomplished. It set one into motion and action.
