button up and soar

Eagle-like awareness for details, big picture sensibility and the open-winged eagerness to travel the world every chance she gets. At Hailey Sault, she’s a part-time proofreader with a full-time passion for excellence—ensuring that all manner of content is correct in every way possible, and a greeter who lends dignity to the daily grind with a warm welcome at Hailey Sault’s front door. When not at work, her other “part-time job” entails journeying to favorite locations for new tastes, sights and experiences. Be it a long weekend in Florida or an extended jaunt to France, her joy de vivre is not a bad way to fly.

What’s her Hailey Sault?

“If it’s a place, it almost certainly would have to be Paris. Or France. Or the Alps. If it’s a pursuit, it has to be travel itself: exploring new places and looking closer in familiar ones, exploring museums inside and out, and always learning, learning, learning—soaking up the feel, the look, the ambience, the sounds and the smells.”

fear nothing

Calm, focused, attentive, caring. It’s a nice combo platter of traits for a person whose morning ritual involves coordinating the traffic meeting as a pack of creatives plays “word association” games. With impeccable timing, she lets the dust settle and keeps the team in tune so that work can stay on track and on time.

Not unlike running her household, where she’s been known to teach her teenagers how to cook in between getting them to baseball, dance, and national science competitions.

What’s her Hailey Sault?

“It isn’t a necessarily a place, but it could be. Maybe “home?” It’s wherever my family is.”

make life more

What do you need? Sara gets it done. With a lot on the plate and the next project looming, her peers never tire of Sara’s energy, enthusiasm and deadpan humor. An art director turned entrepreneur turned office manager, she’s done it all. With a kind of grace under fire that brings peace and purpose to the mission at hand. Maybe that’s because, when she’s not busy working, you’ll find her enjoying the comfort of old friendships, working on her house and the fantastic potential of a daughter who’s following in her vibrant, fun loving footsteps.

What’s her Hailey Sault?

“It’s impossible to name only one in my life. The list is long but always includes those I love and the blessing of living next to the magical shores of Lake Superior.”

try new things

Creating art is in Annie’s blood. At any given moment you’ll find her sketching life as it unfolds around her. When she isn’t sketching her surroundings she’s taking inspiration from them. The art of different cultures, architecture, a poster she sees on the wall, a new technique she needs to try—they all influence her designs. And what do you think this designer does to relax? You got it—she draws, paints, writes music and jams on her ukulele. We told you—art is in her blood.

What’s her Hailey Sault?

“Watching the sunrise over Lake Superior.”

set your full potential free

A self-professed perfectionist with a passion for everything digital— from websites to social media messaging—he has the organizational skills and attention to detail it takes to make digital communication magic. Running, and spending time outdoors, in the great north woods is what Mark does to power down and find the peace he needs to charge up his creativity.

What’s his Hailey Sault?

“Being on the water. It could be a lake, ocean or a river, and I don’t have to be fishing. I enjoy fishing, but I feel fully at peace and happy when I’m outside in the sun and on a boat somewhere. It just works for me and I love it.”

stay true

She’s keen with a phrase, diligent with a description and astute at mining for what matters—so that clients look, sound and feel true to life. Her writing builds on her genuine lifestyle, which includes everything from running and book club to reaching out a hand to friends and community causes. Just as she pursues bold concepts for clients, she pursues the next bold step in her life. Afraid of public speaking? It’s why the industry veteran joined the local Toastmasters, letting her voice be heard in another clear, true way.

What’s her Hailey Sault?

“Cross country skiing anywhere around the spectacular North Shore. Pursuing my Hailey Sault gives me perspective: I have to work to get out in it, but it rewards me with quiet and peace. It makes me think about my place in this big, beautiful planet and all that it offers me. I am conscious and in the moment when I am out on the trail.”
