Employee Spotlight: Sara Romsaas, Digital Project Manager
Creatives are a different bunch. We're a passionate group. But there comes a time when we need someone to step in to keep our ideas on track. That's where Sara Romsaas, our Digital Project Manager, shines.
Not only does Sara keep projects moving, she also acts as the main point of contact for our clients. Sara has a knack for aligning busy schedules, carving out meeting times, and making sure communication is on-point.
That, and she still finds time to spoon with cheetahs. Seriously, folks. It happened. She's also swam with sharks and hiked to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. So when she throws something on your calendar, you'd better comply.
Get to know a bit more about Sara and Denamico in the video below.
1. How would you describe your role?
As their main point of contact, I get to interact with our clients for day-to-day project needs and keep them updated on progress and reporting. I make sure our team is working on the right things at the right time, and constantly work to make Denamico more efficient.
2. What aspects of your role do you enjoy the most?
I am able to build relationships with our prospective and current clients, learn about what they do, and their business goals. But I also get to work closely with everyone within Denamico. I also get to talk a lot and people have to listen.
3. Before working at Denamico, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
For one year, I was a high school English teacher at a government school in rural Tanzania, where I also served as coach of the netball team.
4. What do you like most about Denamico?
Our team is a great group of talented individuals who trust and allow each other to own our respective areas of expertise, which allows us to do amazing work for our clients.
5. If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?
I mean, Beyonce... but since I am neither musical nor at her level, Candace Cameron. It would be a Hallmark movie – borderline boring, borderline depressing, and borderline inspiring.
6. Top three life highlights?
- Summiting Mount Kilimanjaro
- Swimming with great white sharks in the Indian Ocean
- Walking a cheetah on a leash, and then spooning with it
7. If you were an animal what would you be?
I would be a squirrel. They eat nuts, they live in the city, and since they are rodents, people don’t like to touch them.
8. If you were to write a self-help book, what would the topic be?
