Sarah Carlson
Project Estimator
The Basics:

What is your name/nicknames?
My name is Sarah Carlson. When I was born, my sister wanted to name me Sheebs. Thankfully, my parents didn’t listen to her but she still calls me Sheebie or Sheebs to this day. I’ve always gone to school or worked with other Sarah’s so I sometimes go by Carl for short.

How would you describe your position?
I’m a Project Estimator, which means I help create accurate job estimates for brand new and existing clients.

What are your academic credentials?
I received a diploma in Arts and Cultural Management and am a 4th year Accounting Major in the Bachelor of Commerce program at MacEwan University.

What do you do in your spare time?
Mostly hang with friends which includes playing board games, eating good food, and traveling. I also love taking my dog, Myrtle, on walks in the river valley.

Who or what inspires you and why?
A good underdog story always gets me in the feels and makes me want to take on a challenge.

The Random:

What is your favorite food?
It’s too hard to choose just one! Honestly, I love food and have a huge soft spot for anything sweet. Dessert has to be my favourite meal

What is your favorite holiday?
Christmas is my favourite holiday because I get to spend time with friends and family and eat too much food. Also, nothing beats the smell of a christmas tree, sleeping in, and watching movies in your pjs all day while pigging out on leftovers.

Can you do any stupid human tricks?
Both of my elbows hyperextend… that’s a trick, right?

Do you take the mini shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?
I’m a bit obsessed with skincare products and am very particular about what I use, so that is a hard pass.

Do you play board games? Which ones?
Yes! I like to play Ticket to Ride, 7 Wonders, Pandemic, Sushi Go, Codenames, and I’m still discovering more.
