Meet Sarah

Oct 6, 2020

Tell us a little bit about your background before joining The Key team.
I just graduated from Northern Arizona University this past spring, earning my B.S. in Strategic Communication with a double emphasis in Public Relations and Advertising.

Throughout college I kept myself busy and quickly joined Pi Beta Phi, held internships, worked as a TA, and studied abroad in Siena, Italy.

I was born and raised in San Diego, California and have wanted to move up to San Francisco ever since I was a little girl. The idea of living somewhere with so much culture and history excites me. The aspects of my life that fill my heart the most are my family, friends, traveling - I love to explore, cook, all the arts, dogs, and a good laugh.

Describe your work style in five words.
Communicative, meticulous, empathetic, collaborative, and passionate

What are your favorite kinds of projects to tackle?
I’m an extremely visual and hands-on type of person. I love working on projects that push me to think divergently and get the creative juices flowing.

What’s your proudest moment at work (here or elsewhere)?
One of my proudest professional accomplishments happened during my time interning at the NAU Advanced Media Lab. During my internship, my team and I completely rebranded the lab, making our mark not only on campus and in the community of Flagstaff, but also on a nationwide collegiate level.

What makes you the most excited to be at The Key?
There is an overwhelming sense of teamwork and empowerment throughout The Key and that's the reason I’m so thrilled to be a part of this team. The Key’s women are passionate, clever and influential. Working alongside them has been, and will continue to be, inspiring.

Lightning Round:

Favorite snack while you work? Popcorn and coffee!

Badass female role model? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Michelle Obama, Sophia Bush, my incredible girl friends, and of course all the strong women in my family.

Power song? Anything Beyoncé!

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?  Teleportation - ideally I would spend my work days in San Francisco and weekends in Italy. This power would make that possible!

Work with the Best

A lot of complexity comes from an unwillingness to commit to the things that insight and understanding surface.
