Sara Mutchler


Client Projects Manager + Workshop Instructor

“Social media is the newest way to tell the story of your brand in a creative and fun way.”

Sara’s background in education and training (she was a middle school English teacher and was in HR Training at Target Corp.) combined with her love for social media, has led her to a perfect crossroads. Sara’s passion is helping people understand how to use social media in a way that doesn’t overwhelm their lives, yet helps promote their small business. Social media started as a way for Sara to interact with the outside world during her time as a stay-at-home mom, but has grown into so much more—including how Sara and Rachel first interacted and met! Her two kids (who happen to be 11 months apart) keep Sara and her husband on their toes at all times. When Sara isn’t chasing around her kids or being social online, you can typically find her writing or reading—her two favorite pastimes. Sara is a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a BA in English. She also received her MN Communication Arts/Literature License (grades 5-12) from Hamline University.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” - Maya Angelou 

While Lee’s marketing and branding talents stem from the dark ages of working at Target Corporation when online shopping first hit the dial-up computer world, her true passion is writing and more specifically, crafting stories. Lee is an author and speaker and refers to herself as a “hope spreader and truth teller.” She has written two books, Table in the Darkness: A Healing Journey Through an Eating Disorder and her latest, Brave is the the New Beautiful: Courage to be the Real You. Lee also works as a mental health practitioner in the field of eating disorders and addictions. It is words and the use of language that fill her soul so she can often be found devouring books or writing in her home office, unless she is driving her three teenage boys around town and/or trying to manage the smells of what she calls “the frat house.”
