Sarah Thornton

Being outside is my fuel- running trails, paddle boarding and swimming in the Atlantic, hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway- all sources for daily inspiration. Growing up near the North Carolina coast and now living in Durham, I have much appreciation for both the mountains and the coast and feel fortunate to still have access to both within my reach.

With a background in strategic marketing and branding, I am excited to use a creative perspective to highlight Alta's incredible work in this industry nationally (and globally) and continue to gain and grow new business. I enjoy the initial research and start of new projects, understanding the communities from within and helping reach the goals to ensure happier, healthier communities around the world. Working with Alta to fulfill our mission in creating active communities allows me to align my career with my passions- lucky me!
