Sarah Goertz
Digital Director, Greteman Group

What was your last position?
Digital marketing and social media manager at Beechcraft and Textron Aviation.

What is your hometown?
I moved to Derby from the Texas panhandle at age 12.

I earned a bachelors of science in multimedia journalism from Oklahoma State University and an associates of applied science in digital media from Butler Community College.

Husband, Matt, and 1-year-old daughter, Bianca.

What was your first job?
At 15, I sold newspaper subscriptions over the phone for the Derby Informer.

How long have you lived in Wichita and what are your impressions of the city?
As an adult, I’ve lived in Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado, but I always found my way back home to Wichita.

What area of town do you live in?
I live in Maize and served on the city of Maize planning commission for four years.

Who is the person you would most like to meet?
My paternal grandmother, Faedra Lorraine, was killed in a train accident on a country road when my father was 7 years old. I look at her photos and see reflections of myself.

What was the last book you read?
“Green Eggs and Ham” was technically the last book I read.

What is your favorite Wichita restaurant and why?
Abuelos for two reasons. It’s where we go as a family for Mother’s Day, birthdays, you name it. It’s also where I went to lunch with my co-workers when I worked at Beechcraft.

What is your favorite vacation spot?
I like going to a Sandals Resort on any tropical island with white sandy beaches. There’s something exhilarating about walking into a restaurant with no money in your pocket and ordering anything you want to eat or drink. It feels free even though it really isn’t.

What are your favorite movies?
Quentin Tarantino’s “True Romance.” It’s disturbing, but the characters and soundtrack are spellbinding. I actually walked down the wedding aisle to the movie’s opening music.
