Sabrina was the daughter of Mr. Santiago and his late wife, Gabriela Santiago.

At the time of her tragic death, Michael was planning on proposing to Sabrina.


Michael and Sabrina met when Michael offered her a job at the new clinic he was establishing in A.J. Quartermaine's honor -- the A.J. Quartermaine clinic. Having recently been fired from GH, Sabrina readily accepts the job. Michael and Sabrina start to form a friendship as they await the opening of the clinic. Unfortunately, Michael runs into several roadblocks as he tries to open the clinic. Eventually, the clinic opening is stalled all together.

On Valentine's Day, Sabrina goes to see Michael and they share a glass of wine. She apologizes and tells him that she can't work at the clinic anymore, because she needs a job now and can't wait any longer for the clinic to open. In response to this, Michael offers Sabrina a job as a nanny for his baby sister Avery, whom he recently gained custody of. Sabrina is hesitant at first due to her history with Avery's mother, Ava Jerome, but after some convincing from Michael she accepts the job.

Avery's other siblings, Morgan Corinthos and Kiki Jerome begin plotting to steal Avery away from Michael. They decide to drug Michael and catch him drunk on camera to show that he is not an ideal guardian for Avery. To make things worse, Morgan and Kiki switch out Michael's allergy pills with some sort of roofie. While out and about town, Michael, Sabrina and Avery run into Morgan and Kiki at the Metro Court Hotel. Morgan and Kiki provoke Michael knowing that he had been drinking and would likely be high off the drugs.

Morgan and Kiki set up a cameraman and catch Michael making a huge scene in the middle of the hotel. They later catch him on camera as he knocks into Avery's stroller and sends it falling to the ground, with Avery inside. Child protective services immediately comes out and takes Avery from Michael, granting guardianship to Kiki. Sabrina begins to suspect that something is not right with the entire situation. She takes the pills Michael had been taking to GH and asks her best friend Felix DuBois to test them. Meanwhile as Michael's life continues to spiral out of control, he begs Sabrina to believe in him. He begs her to believe that he wasn't taking drugs and she does.

The test results come back and Sabrina learns that someone had been switching Michael's allergy meds with something stronger. She immediately goes to Michael and tells him that the events of the last few weeks weren't his fault, because someone has been drugging him. Michael starts to put the pieces together and the picture becomes clear. He immediately goes out and confronts Morgan and Kiki. After the confrontation, Michael is so grateful to Sabrina for standing by him, believing in him and uncovering the truth about the pills. The two share their first kiss in his ELQ office. Sabrina is suprised by the kiss and pulls away and tells Michael that they shouldn't. Michael asks why. Sabrina tells him because she knows he is happy. That's why. Michael stops her and says he is happy, but this means something more. The two kiss again. They are later interrupted by Ned.

Michael asks Sabrina to be his date to The Nurses' Ball and she agrees. The two walk the red carpet together and have a great time. Michael admired Sabrina as she performed in several numbers throughout the night. At the end of the evening, Michael walked Sabrina back to her apartment and they shared another kiss. Sabrina decides they need to talk about what is happening between them, since they never discussed the change in their relationship after the first two times they kissed. She invites Michael in, so they can talk.

Michael and Sabrina talk about their growing feelings for each other, their exes and how a personal relationship between them would affect their working relationship. After getting everything out in the open, they decide they are ready and want to pursue a relationship. They make plans for a date the next evening and end the night with another kiss.

Michael shows up for their date at Sabrina's place. Sabrina completely forgot about their date and apologizes. Michael says it's okay. Sabrina is worried about Carlos. Michael and Sabrina discuss Carlos and their date. They later order food and have fun. Sabrina thanks Michael for keeping her company tonight. She says they were supposed to be on a date, but instead they are here. Michael tells her he is having fun here with her. He tells her he likes her a lot and he doesn't care where they are or what they are doing. He likes getting to know her better, Sabrina agrees. Sabrina kisses Michael and they start to get very passionate on kissing. Michael stops it when Sabrina proceeds to unbutton his shirt. He thinks they should take things slowly. He wants to do this right. Sabrina agrees. Michael kisses her goodbye and leaves.

Sabrina suspects that Rosalie is the one who has been helping someone steal ELQ stocks from Michael. Rosalie was Michael's secretary at the time. She shares her concerns with him. Michael appreciates her concerns, but doesn't think it was Rosalie. Sabrina decides to take matters into her own hands and hires Sam to spy on Rosalie. Michael finds out and asks Sabrina if she is jealous. Tracy yells that Sabrina isn't jealous and that Rosalie is the spy. Sam confirms it. Michael is shocked and apologizes to Sabrina and she accepts and tells him she should have told him what she was doing. After Michael learns it was Nikolas Cassadine that was stealing the ELQ stocks, he goes to Sabrina and thanks her. He says that she went above and beyond as an employee and that he probably has written 100 pages for her recommendation letter. Sabrina tells him she didn't only do it because she worked for him, she did it because she cares about him.

Sabrina helps Michael make a tough choice whether to keep or give Avery back to Sonny. Michael decides that he should give Avery back to her father. After Michael returns Avery to Sonny, the two head back to Sabrina's apartment. Sabrina tells Michael that she's proud of him. Michael and Sabrina make love for the first time on June 29, 2015.

Next morning, the two wake up together in bed. They discuss on giving Avery back to Sonny. Sabrina tells Michael that was a big step. Michael agrees. The first out of two he adds. The second one being them, here. Sabrina asks how he felt about taking that step. Michael tells her next time she doesn't need to ask and they have sex again. After, Michael says he has nothing to do since he has no job and no sister to take care of. Sabrina says there must be something to do and Michael ask her if that's her way of telling him to get lost. Sabrina laughs and says no. He later says he does have something to do, give Avery's things back. Sabrina decides to help him and the two head off to Michael's.

Michael finds Sabrina outside lying on a chair in the sun. They discuss about Sonny allowing Denise to see Avery. Sabrina brings up the A.J. Quartermaine Clinic and tells Michael that the plan is a go. Michael is pleasantly surprised and kisses Sabrina and thanks her.

Michael and Sabrina are out near the pool for a date. Michael asks Sabrina if she wants to go for a swim. Sabrina is hesitant, but she says sure she'll go in, after Michael. Michael tells her she's chickening out and Sabrina says she not. She then says the water is cold. Michael then tells her that they can go back to the house and Sabrina says okay. As they are about to go Michael grabs Sabrina and tries to playfully push her in the water. Sabrina starts screaming and Michael stops and tells her he'd never do that to her. The two share a kiss.

Michael wakes up from a bad dream about Sonny. Sabrina wakes up beside him and the two talk about Morgan and Carly and Sonny's wedding. Michael says the only possibility of him going to the wedding is because of Morgan. Michael asks Sabrina what would her plans be if he decided to go to the wedding and take her as his guest. Sabrina says she has three dresses in the closet, so she'll shower and change. Michael asks what would her plans be if they decided to stay in bed all day. She says her three dresses will stay in the closet. Michael tells her she's the greatest. Sabrina smiles and asks for "lip service". Michael tells her he will give her lip service and they kiss. Sabrina tells Michael that now that he has told her she wouldn't mind if he showed her. The two fall back into bed.

Eventually, Sabrina tells Michael she is pregnant. Michael is very surprised and asks Sabrina if she is actually carrying his child. He asks her how long has she known. She tells him she knew for a few weeks. Michael asks her why she didn't tell him. Sabrina tells him she took multiple pregnancy tests and was hoping for a negative result because she didn't want to fear losing another baby. Michael tells her she should have told him so they would have got through this together. Michael says the thought being a dad is terrifying, but he is happy. He tells Sabrina he loves her and should have told her that a long time ago. He says both of his families will be very happy. Michael says this is a big step, but he wants to start a family with her. Sabrina tells Michael the only thing she needs is him and she tells Michael she loves him, and their baby.

Sabrina tells him that she was scared that she would hurt him and lose him. Michael leaves.

Sabrina goes to Sonny's house after Christmas and she asks Michael if he thought about what they talked about and he says "Yeah. That Carlos is your baby's dad and I'm not". Michael tells Sabrina that he hates being lied to and he thought she was different. Michael just wishes that she had told him because she understands that a family is made up of love and it doesn't matter about biology. Sabrina says they can still try to be a family. They argue and she still tells him that she loves him. Michael says he doesn't know what to believe anymore. He offers her financial support because it's expensive taking care of a baby, but she denies the money and says to him "I never wanted your money I wanted you". She adds that she wanted him too much. She lied to keep him, but she lost him. Michael says sorry. Sabrina says he shouldn't be saying sorry, she's the one that messed up. It's a mistake she'll always regret.
