Sarah's Profile

Experience Summary

I'm the kind of person that my friends count on when it really matters because they know I won't let them down! I'm fiercely loyal, and I make personal sacrifices to keep the commitments that I make. I started working promotional events in 2006. It fit my personality well because I'm an upbeat, outgoing and approachable individual. I have a passion for music and nutrition. I've been playing cello since 1994, and I earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Purdue University in 2009. I also love to cook, travel and play board games!
