The Master Organizer
Sarah is our very own system creator, people aligner, and productivity maximizer. Determined and decisive yet calm and cooperative, Sarah's balanced approach enables her—and the people around her—to get the most out of every day. We’re amazed at her ability to prioritize, plan, and then give her undivided attention to the person or the task she’s working on until completion. Outside work, she applies her patience, knowledge, and nurturing spirit to grow everything from parsley to peonies in her garden. Person or plant, Sarah thrives on supporting the things around her.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever. Mahatma Gandhi
