MEET SARAH

designer • podcaster • digital nomad

I call Northeast Wisconsin home, but I love traveling and living the digital nomad life. Beaches and good food are definitely involved!

My remote work involves branding and marketing design as the owner and designer at Sarah Schrader Design. I also co-host a podcast with my sweet friend Shaunae called The Creative Legacy Podcast for creative entrepreneurs. I love my Rising Tide TuesdaysTogether group where I am a co-leader helping to support community over competition.

You will find many of my other loves on the pages of this blog as well!
