Sarah Shoulak currently works as an Account Manager for Designzillas, an Orlando-based digital marketing agency. In this role, Shoulak focuses on managing relationships and keeping clear communication across the team’s portfolio of Growth Partners. It is also challenging to keep an up-to-date headshot of her since she’s constantly changing her hair cut and style with bold colors (and sometimes even wearing wigs!).
Prior to joining Designzillas, Shoulak was an Adjunct Faculty member at both Valencia Community College and Florida International University teaching Public Speaking and Interpersonal Communication. Her use of humor, combined with her modern appearance, made it easy for students of all ages to feel comfortable with one of the most uncomfortable experiences people encounter; speaking in front of groups. You could say that she is the opposite of the cliché, stuffy college professor.
Sarah Shoulak has a M.A. in Communication Studies from The University of Miami in Miami, FL and a B.A. in Communication from The University of Colorado in Denver, CO. She first joined Toastmasters International in 2008 and was the Keynote Speaker at the Toastmasters Leadership Institute in 2015. Her early professional career also included participation in two National Student Leadership Conferences on the subjects of Entrepreneurship & Business and Mastering Leadership. In addition, she is active in her family’s music festival fundraiser to support breast cancer research, treatment, education, and cure.
