There’s experience here, listen to it.

Guiding Principles

Expect greatness - from yourself in everything you do and from everyone around you.

Praise in public; construct in private.

Give credit where credit is due - don’t take credit for what another has done well; own your organization's opportunities for improvement and improve them.

Work hard and enjoy your hard work.

Have grace.

Never settle - in business, as in relationships: Be passionate! If not, move on.



We can talk about ourselves all day, but what really matters is what others say about us. We'd be happy to provide you with some references that can expand on some of these thoughts as we move into an engagement together.

A startup is faced with a lot of decisions, most of which have to be made swiftly, and have sweeping and lasting impact on the business. Sarah’s breadth of experience with corporate management and operations informs her wisdom and lends authority to her advice. Having her on our advisory board gives me incredible peace of mind.

Being one of the greatest motivators I have met, she is the “go to person” when difficult issues arise. She has built a reputation as someone who has a broad vision not only for the Customer Success team, but for the organization as a whole. Her vision for overall organization success is what will take a company far beyond their current expectations.
— Gavin Wilson, Sr CS Consultant

Sarah is one of the most detailed-oriented customer management professionals in the industry and has amazing leadership abilities. Her talent for assembling strong teams and making everyone in her team feel valued is the best I’ve witnessed in my 20+ years of account management. Sarah understands the goals and KPIs of her team and helps them to ensure those goals are met. She has an impressive ability to work with clients to understand their long term critical business issues and spends time with her team solving them so they can deal with the day-to-day grind. There’s not many people I would drop everything and anything to help out if asked to. Sarah is one of those people.
