Meet the Team: Sarah Tanner
She’s met Queen Bey more than a few times…
Day One Firsts
First job: Babysitting three boys. Basically my job was to keep them from climbing on the roof.
First word: Don’t remember? Am I supposed to?
First car: Ford Explorer… a pass down from my Dad, to my Sister, to my Brother… then me. Needless to say, she was well loved.
First album you ever bought: Definitely one of the early versions of ‘Now, that’s what I call music.’
First childhood fear: I didn’t have one, or at least wouldn’t admit to one. I was fearless.
First celebrity crush: Jonathan Taylor Thomas, duh.
First phone: Can’t remember! But RIP to the Razor.
