”Thorough and analytical

is the phrase that comes to

mind when I think

about Sarah. I had the

pleasure of working with

her for over five years

during which she managed

the quarterly KPIs for my

international sales team. I

was impressed

with Sarah’s calm

demeanor in tough

executive meetings, and

her presentations to senior

leadership were always on

point. Sarah’s ability to

work cross functionally

with different departments

and to analyze and solve

complex problems would

be a true asset for any

company. “ -Tony Tate

VP of International Sales

Western Digital 2015

”Sarah is a hard working,

dedicated and loyal

employee. Her analytical

skills, diligence, being a

team player and her sound

judgement are her greatest

strength's. I would highly

recommend Sarah.” Scott
