Sarah grew up in Bend, OR with a highly social and active family that never liked to put off a task or activity until the next day. Sarah’s family taught her take on every activity or challenge head on while analyzing as many outcomes as possible and planning accordingly. This mind set spurred her love for customer service and writing, which pushed her toward a career that involved getting to know people and helping them achieve their goals. These career interests led Sarah to working with the media group associated with her college where she took on several roles that interested her, including blogging, news, and video editing, before realizing that marketing allowed her to use the majority of her interests and skills in one setting.
Sarah’s career at Direct Placement, LLC started in 2017 when she began working as a Paid Search Strategist in the Placement Department. Since then, she has expanded her knowledge of different kinds of advertising strategies and platforms, which allowed her to grow into a management position within the department. Sarah holds a Bachelor’s degree in English with specializations in writing and film studies from Oregon State University. She is a Bing Ads Accredited Professional and holds several certifications with Google AdWords, ranging from Search to Shopping advertising.
Sarah enjoys almost any kind of outdoor adventure from hiking to boating, especially when it means she gets to spend quality time with her family. Every year, she does a sky dive with her older brother to celebrate their birthdays. Although she does share her family’s energetic daily mindset, she also enjoys spending her downtime with a good book or TV show whenever possible.
