Sarah has been one of my favourite influencers to work with. Responsive, organized, professional and a delight all-around, she delivers excellent work quickly and with great results. She knows her community and is skilled at packaging a message in a way that’s relevant, timely, and appropriate for her audience. She’s an example of an influencer who can receive little direction and still produce authentic and high quality content that’s true to the product. I loved working with Sarah and hope to collaborate with her again in the future.
