being a dot connector.
Expertise: Strategic Communications, Employee Engagement, Internal Branding
Sadie’s job is to make the vision a reality. She works closely with clients and teammates to craft and execute careful plans, but is always ready to pivot for life’s hurdles.
Sadie began her career in the non-profit and higher ed sectors, working in communications, development and community engagement. Shortly after moving to Chicago, she put her skills to work here as a dedicated production team member on one of AJ’s key accounts. Every day since, she has strived to maintain and grow this strong client relationship.
Being an active community member is a cornerstone for Sadie. One of her proudest achievements was launching the “Mosaics in Motion” trolley tour for Green Star Movement, a Chicago non-profit that builds community identity through public art. As the Chair, she and the Associate Board continue their efforts to foster engagement and further GSM’s mission.
Sadie loves to travel. Nothing excites her like the chance to dive into a new culture headfirst and see the world with non-native eyes. She brings the same sense of adventure, curiosity and delight to her work with every client, on every project.
When asked why she loves working at AJ, Sadie said, “Have you ever missed coming into the office after being onsite for a week? Before AJ, me neither. There’s never a dull moment. Not to mention my coworkers are the bomb.”
