Sarah Dixon
Director of Operations

Sarah’s role is to make sure all promises are delivered upon. This means she handles all details of the planning process that clients are engaging in with Joe and the team.  Sarah has a unique ability where she thrives in an environment that has no predictability and is able to adapt on the fly while at all times keeping her eye on what needs to be done.  Sarah has an incredibly high desire to see to it that everyone has a great experience in working with the team.  Sarah joined Joe’s team in 2011 and immediately became the glue that held everything together.

 

Sarah is a native Memphian who enjoys traveling with her better half, Shawn. Her goal is to see and experience somewhere new and different whenever there is the opportunity. When not engaged with the team or traveling the world, you can most likely find Sarah at a music venue listening to live music or anywhere that involves food, whether that be the new restaurant in town or hosting a dinner party with family and friends. She loves to learn and is always looking for the next adventure!
