Sarah has wide-ranging experience managing a variety of projects including: book production, large-scale events, conferences and galas, crowdfunding campaigns, fundraising and outreach, and the development of sponsorship proposals. With a positive and professional approach, Sarah can help accelerate initiatives, facilitate the coordination of tasks between team members and volunteers, introduce new approaches and strategies, manage project timelines and assist in realizing overall objectives.

TESTIMONIALS

I love working with Sarah. She's positive, pro-active, sweet-natured, a lot of fun, attentive to details and insanely organized. What more could you want in a team mate and project manager?

Jo-Anne McArthur, Photographer, Founder and President
of We Animals Media

I hired Sarah as a project consultant to help me with the publication of my book. She has provided that and so much more - brand identification, project goal setting, outreach advice, and even editorial and design feedback on my work. She is very knowledgable, caring, organized, responsive, professional, and lovely to work with. She is a wonderful coach and cheerleader and has had a very positive impact on my business and ability to execute on my personal mission.
