I’m so happy you’re visiting!

Chicks Who Give a Hoot is a movement. It’s a collective. It’s a journey. It’s a place to inspire creative women to use their collective power for good. I believe that women possess a unique ability to drive change. I believe that we’re wired to care about the world around us and we have immense influence. The question is then, how do we use that power and influence to change the wrongs we see in the world.

I hope you’ll find resources and inspiration in this space. I hope you’ll find yourself coming back again and again. I hope you’ll see yourself as a Chick Who Gives a Hoot. 

You’ll also find a bit of of me here too.

My name is Sara and I’m a writer, photographer, and designer doing my best to live a creative life in the desert with my energetic toddler and handsome husband. I love collaborating, community, and coffee. Alliteration is clearly my favorite literary device and I’m a fierce advocate for the oxford comma. I spend my days advocating for vulnerable people as the Senior Copywriter for Food for the Hungry, but my nights are for creating.

I’m convinced that I was created to create! 

  • I create a life with my family.
  • I create stories and observations
  • I create emotion
  • I create photos
  • I create designs and graphics
  • I create websites
  • I create art
  • I create a space to share and be vulnerable

 

I started this site because I desperately needed a place to funnel all the creative energy that I had when I was in a lackluster job and depleted of a quality outlet. I’ve since changed jobs a few times, had a baby, and dished out tons of creative projects. I’d like to think that this blog has seen me from the darkest most confusing times of life to the most proud and happiest. It’s been like a good friend to me. It’s for me to share my projects, express my ideas, and develop my skills, and document my creative journey. I hope you’ll find something special here.

Here are some favorite posts that will give you a deeper glimpse into my heart and my journey.

I’m happy and proud to take on a handful of freelance projects as well. I tackle everything from copywriting, branding, graphic design, photography, content marketing, and website building. Feel free to check out my latest projects here. You can contact me at hello@chickswhogiveahoot.com if you’d like to chat about an upcoming project.
