a little more about sara
  • Started Soda Creek Consulting in 2008.
  • Is all about making communication PRACTICAL + APPLICABLE for the intended audience, meaning it needs to find immediate use for the service, product, or information in its life.
  • Refined her communication skills through working directly with a variety of audiences in real world settings. This helped her to move from theories about people and their communication preferences to an actual understanding of audience needs and motivators.
  • Is well-versed in the principles of adult learning, plain language best practices, and train-the-trainer strategies.
  • Has an MA in Communication from the University of New Mexico. And a BA in Spanish and BS in Advertising from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
  • Originally from Colorado where, as a kid, she’d spend many a summer day hiking and exploring the waters of Soda Creek (it’s real!).
