Hi! I'm Sara.

Connecting with others through community, design & podcasting.

Life is a journey, not a career path.

Likes

Authenticity, dogs, running, hiking, surfing, humor & a good adult beverage.

Dislikes

Exclusivity, racism, hate, reply guys, circus clowns & red beets.

After 17 years in healthcare doing everything from oncology nursing, to management to product management, I needed a change. I left the corporate ladder to ride the creator wave in December 2019 in search of something more fulfilling.

Part community builder, part podcaster, part designer, full human. I love finding new ways to connect with creatives through community, content creation, web design, and podcasting. I have no idea what I am doing, but enjoying figuring it out along the way.

After a TON of failure I started to openly talk about my journey on Twitter and to my surprise it resonated with so many. Quickly realizing that there are amazing resources out there, but no one place to start, I created the Helping Creatives community.
