Oh hello! I’m Sarah, an entrepreneur, speaker, startup growth marketer, and innovation professional. I’m the Founder and CEO of Valkerie, a boutique tech growth consultancy based in Toronto ON.

I’m a guest tech expert for The CBC, and CTV, and a TEDx speaker. I'm a frequent speaker at universities, events and conferences across North America.

I’ve spent my career working on early stage technology startups, starting as a foundational team member of Wave, a Canadian financial technology giant. More recently I led the International Community Growth team at the San Francisco payments startup, Tilt, which was acquired by Airbnb in 2017. 


Motivating and inspiring audiences is my jam. Whether it’s delivering a keynote at a conference to set the tone of the day, or teaching a workshop to a small classroom— I love designing content that engages and connects.

I’ve spoken and taught at universities, colleges, and conferences across Canada including TEDx Wilfrid Laurier University. I’ve been featured on as a tech expert on The CBC and CTV.

I frequently emcee events, and moderate panels. I pride myself on delivering an engaging, entertaining experience every time. My Second City comedy training comes in handy ;) If I can help with a conference or corporate training you’re planning, please reach out!
