How we crossed paths?
Before 2008 (I say that because those years all come together as one) Sara and I both worked at Canary Wharf for Barclays Bank. I have such recollection of her still being at her desk, as was I, during many dark long evenings. We’d chat, and I’d always be appreciative that a senior executive had time for the executive assistant. Sara treats everyone as humans, with no hierarchy, only seeing them as souls, and giving everyone the time of day. That’s why she’s been so amazing in her roles. When I first travelled to the US in 2009, I asked Sara where she recommended I stayed in Seattle. Instead she picked me up at the airport, with a bottle of water, and took me back to her home with husband Jeff. The start of a very beautiful friendship.
Her offering for Soulhub Journal Collective?
