Sara Drenzek is the marketing manager for our Oregon region, leading pursuits and other marketing efforts for our Portland and Bend offices. A natural people person, she thrives on making connections and uplifting those around her.

She strives to tell the story behind a project to represent best the technical expertise that our engineers and designers pour into their work. Her favorite part about working at Säzän is understanding how the systems we design and assess positively impact the health of a building and its end users.

Coast – I love the sound of the ocean waves and laying on the beach.

What fictional place would you love to visit?
Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory
Cats, dogs, or other?

Dream vacation?
Around the world in a year, without a solid plan of where to go. I’d get advice in each destination to inform the next stop on the adventure.
