Sara McTigue, CLC

Sara McTigue is a secret agent, cupcake chef, award winning author, photographer, and PTA mom. At least, that is how things look in her mind. When she isn’t testing the bounds of her imagination, she is a mom to three amazing and hilariously funny children, wife to a charming and handsome man, and thoroughly addicted to reading. With a BS in English Education and an MA in English Literature, words – and their ability to shape our lives and thoughts – are an everyday fascination. After several years teaching high schoolers how to think critically, write clearly, and text message during class discreetly, she was lucky enough to conceive her daughter Annabella. Suddenly there was only one student in her classroom, and she was more of a drooler than a talker. Sara parlayed her skills into work at home opportunities; creating curriculum, copy editing, and writing between marathon Dr. Seuss readings and middle of the night wakings. It was like taking an adventure in pajamas, with the chance to work in diverse industries from tourism to medical marketing. Sara has never been particularly good at math, and somehow trying to add one more child to the family resulted in three children when the doctor announced that those two blobs on the screen were, in fact, two babies. (Those two blobs grew beautifully into Lorelei and Sawyer, who are much less blob-like now.) She relates to Julie Andrews singing “I must have done something good” every day when she wakes. The universe seems to have aligned, and daily work and daily life are entangled in all the best ways. When she isn’t reading, writing, or parenting she likes to get tipsy with friends, watch shows that make her sleep with a nightlight, and photograph life so she won’t forget a second.
