Meet the Team: Sarah Leone

How did you get into PR?
At university in Ottawa, I had dreams of working for the UN in their international aid division. After a brief stint in India and working for four years with UNICEF planning large-scale fundraising events and sponsorship deals, I put my non-textbook skills together and set off for my post-grad in PR at Humber College.
Not exactly the traditional path, but one I value for the unique background and experience that still comes in quite handy today.
What’s your favourite part about working at FAULHABER?
The people. It’s not often you find a group of people who know how to create a killer story angle, plan an incredible event, manage the stress all while having fun.
What’s your favourite spot to unwind in Toronto?
The gym, I find the best place to take out the day’s stresses and get out of my own head is on the treadmill!
What are your New Year’s resolutions?
I’m not one for making resolutions; they’re made to be broken ;)
Instead, I like to set goals for the year ahead, 2015’s are:
Running my first 10k race
Kayaking with whales
Getting my open waters diving certificate
Dark chocolate. You can’t ever have just one bite!!
If you could be anywhere in the world right now where would it be?
That’s a tough one! I’m going to have to say discovering a new surf beach in Central America, nowhere specific, just somewhere off the grid where the sun is out, people are friendly and the swell is good!
