Sarah Giffrow

Creative Director + Benevolent Overlord (she/her)

Sarah’s path was set in the days of the Old Internet, after she built her very first webpage in 1995. She was raised in a very tech-savvy household and went on to get a B.S. in Multimedia Design from the University of Oregon. Upswept was born out of Sarah’s side-hustle as a photographer, where she often found herself seized by the irrepressible urge to help her clients improve their websites. In her spare time, she can be found lifting heavy barbells, dabbling in musical theatre, and cuddling her best boy Zergling, an affectionate and extremely food-motivated tuxedo cat.

Anna is a seasoned pro when it comes to growing and supporting businesses, honing her knowledge in positions such as the first full-time woman instructor at the United Bicycle Institute and owner of her own yoga studio. For every client and position she holds, she is fueled by the question, “What actions can I take to care for every member of this community?” and the belief that each of us has a unique story to tell. Anna asserts that Doge will always and forever be the king of memes. Such royalty. Many funnies. Wow.
