Sara Lingafelter recently joined Waypoint Outdoor as a Field Service Representative. Sara is better known in the outdoor industry as TheClimberGirl on Twitter, and the climber and writer behind RockClimberGirl.com.
After a starting her career in the tech sector, Sara became an attorney and has practiced law and worked in environmental policy since graduating from Seattle University in 2005. Over the last two years, she’s become increasingly involved in the outdoor industry through social media, participation in events, and writing for her own blog and for other industry publications.
“I’m just so excited to come to work every day,” Sara said about her career change. “The most important factor to me in a job is the team I get to work with. The team at Waypoint, and the larger family of great people I get to work with at our brands, made the decision to transition into this role very easy.”
In addition to other special projects, Sara’s work as a Field Service Representative will be focused mostly on education and relationship-building with shop staff in the Northwestern U.S.
