Meet Sarah Crisafulli with GKA
Sarah, please tell us about your company.
As a creative marketing agency, GKA transforms ideas into tangible results for clients.
When and why did you join NVBIA?
I joined GKA in September 2018. My first taste of NVBIA was the very next month at GALA. If you’ve never been to GALA, this is the grand finale of NVBIA events and I encourage you to come. I was immediately drawn into the energy of NVBIA’s members – lively, animated, and boisterous. You could tell the members had known each other for years and I couldn’t wait to become active in NVBIA to get to know more members intimately!
What is the value of NVBIA to your company?
Professionally and personally – NVBIA has made an impact on our agency and team as a whole. Whether it’s meeting new clients, forming new business relationships, or making new friends in the industry, our entire team views NVBIA as an invaluable resource.
How are involved in the association?
Our team is involved on the GALA committee, GALA judging, and supporting various NVBIA initiatives such as Women in The Building Industry, Meet the Builder, and HomeAid Northern Virginia.
What is something you would say to future member about NVBIA?
Dive in headfirst. The greatest way to meet members and make lifelong friends is to get actively involved in committees and go to as many events as possible – you’ll be welcomed by open arms.
When you have 30 minutes of free time, how do you pass the time?
Usually something productive like going for a walk, walking the dogs, and listening to a podcast, book, or comedy show at the same time.
What is your favorite quote?
”If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.” – Geena Davis
If you were stuck in a TV show for a month, which would it be and why?
Seinfeld. After a year of being locked-down, I would welcome any of my friends to barge unannounced into my house to hang out – even if it’s just for a bowl of cereal.
