Simply put, Sara has a great mind. She has the creativity to formulate great ideas, the analytical and business skills to plan and execute, ... and the personality and drive to see things through to successful completion.
Bruce Rauhe
We worked together  •  R&D Imagineer, Principal, Walt Disney Imagineering. University of California, Berkeley grad. University of Florida grad.
Sara has a keen ability to take in the full situation, create a vision, think strategically about where to take things, and then, amazingly, ... take real action to achieve her goals. She knows "business", from finance to marketing to sales to management.... even technology! I'd have her lead my team any day.
Suelyn Kim
We worked together  •  Creative director and design strategist with 15+ yrs experience. Worked with startups, agencies, consultancies.
Sara is a rare gem, who has amazing foresight, operational, and managerial skills to bring the most challenging ideas or projects to life. ... I've known her for many years now and had the pleasure of working with her as well. She thinks big picture first, and is very mindful of the most effective ways to build it. She's a wonderful communicator and a strategic leader who can take complicated ideas/situations and help people gain an insightful understanding of where to go next. She has a refreshing and "keepin' real" personality that cuts through to the heart of any issue. And in the trenches, she's the one you want to be with. She focuses on how to create or build the right team, while seeking the best results for the business and for people around her.
