Sarah Wise

VP of Marketing and Brand Image & Queen Maker

Tell us about yourself.

Born and raised in Louisville, KY I spent most of my 25+ year career in graphic design and marketing for companies like Pepsi, Brown-Forman, Jack Daniels and The JAM Brands. In 2013 I jumped at the chance to work with TTS because I saw the potential and knew that April and Serena were creating something powerful. I’ve done everything from customer service, team relations, hotel relations and account management, finally landing in my dream position of VP of Marketing and Brand Image. I have LOVED watching this company grow from the little band we once were to the amazing, industry-changing company that we are today. The mom of four and Sasa (grandma) to three, I enjoy making the absolute best of every moment I have with my family and friends.

What is the best thing about working at TTS?

TTS is an extension of my family. I enjoy what I do, but more importantly I truly love the people I work with. Nothing can replace being appreciated and respected by the people you surround yourself with every day.

Name of the person that inspires you the most.

Charlotte, my daughter

What is your favorite memory of working at TTS?

My favorite TTS memory was celebrating April’s birthday in 2020. Covid had shut everything down for a few months and we were all working from home. For April’s birthday we discovered she was going to be in the office to pick something up so several of us met in the back parking lot, staying 6 feet apart, of course! We called her out to the balcony and had maybe a 15 car parade celebration. Lots of loops around the building, honking and fun. It was so great to all be together again, even just for a few minutes, during such a challenging time.

Which core value is your personal favorite and why?

TEAMWORK! If you look up the word in the dictionary, you’ll see a photo of our staff. I’ve worked for a few amazing companies over my career, but none can hold a candle to the way TTS lives and breathes teamwork.

Listen more and talk less.

What are your hobbies?

I’m a pageant director for a Miss Kentucky (Miss America) prelim and enjoy working with these young women to prepare for competition. I love binge-watching Survivor (seriously), small home improvements, hanging out at the lake, hiking and doing just about anything with my kids.

Where did you go to school?

Sullivan University

Who is waiting for you at home?

Two of my children still live at home, Charlotte 19 and Dominic 17. But I’m always happily greeted by my two fur babies, Chico and Lola!
