Sarah Thornton

I have always found being outdoors reinvigorating- running, biking, hiking, and swimming is my time to step away from the daily grind and reset my focus. Growing up near the coast and now living in Durham, NC, I have much appreciation for both the mountains and the sea and feel fortunate to still have access to both within a short distance- that's the charm of NC.

With a background in strategic marketing and branding, I enjoy using a creative perspective to highlight and grow Alta's innovative work in our industry globally, focusing specifically on the East Coast region. Being able to collaborate with a full, in-house technical team supported by a strong operations team, allows me to support our staff to fulfill our company mission- creating active, healthy communities.


Sarah is passionate about creating and amplifying healthy, active communities and is able to support Alta staff through business development strategy and marketing pursuits. Sarah brings an education in English and Creative Writing and a background in strategic marketing, along with a passion for sustainable and equitable community development.

Sarah serves as East Coast Marketing Manager based in Durham, NC.

Alta creates active communities where bicycling and walking are safe, healthy, fun, and normal daily activities.
