Employee Spotlight: Sara Shriber

January 20, 2021

While most of Cosmitto’s team has a strong sense of wanderlust, our newest team member, Sara Shriber, is a valuable resource for all things travel. As you’ll learn, she’s traveled a ton already and has a long list of places still left on her bucket list—she’s even studied abroad in Sydney, Australia AND Florence, Italy! 

Sara’s a born and raised Pittsburgher who currently attends the University of Pittsburgh for Marketing and Supply Chain Management with a certificate in International Business. As Digital Marketing Copywriter at Cosmitto, she’s responsible for creating and executing marketing content, such as blogs, social media posts, and newsletters, for a wide range of clients. We’re lucky to have Sara on board and can’t wait for you to get to know her better from this Q&A!
