Sage Vanalstine

Photographer & Digital Marketer

Hi! I am Sage, an American currently living and working in Paris! Personal passions in social media and photography pushed me to pursue a degree in Marketing and freelance work experience. Throughout work and school, I became fascinated in building strong communities because of the importance of communities to businesses and their customers. Communities create a sense of trust for customers and allow brands to easily and personally engage with their clients to receive great UGC, feedback, etc. I am very personable, out-going and enjoy collaborating with others. I am looking to work with companies who value personal development and are driven to build engaging communities.

Sage's work in community has made a world of difference to our members. She's been consistent with her engagement through the variety of channels (email, blog, social etc.) and provides our community with lots of fun industry-related events. Her skill goes beyond creating an engagement calendar, she creates culture within the community - I would highly recommend Sage to any business looking to grow advocacy within their member base!
