Name: Sarah Dannettell
Job Title: Volleyball Event Director
Family: I have a younger brother and two older step-sisters. My brother lives here in Fort Collins and we are very close! My older siblings live out of state, so I only get to see them during the holidays. My dad and stepmom live in Berthoud CO, and my mom lives in sunny Southern CA. Family is very important to me! I also still have all four of my grandparents alive and active in my life. My dad's parents live in Loveland CO and my mom’s parents live in Sandpoint ID. Brother – Dillon, Dad – Brad, Mom – Kim.
Hometown: Orange County, CA
College Attended: Northwest Missouri State University
Sports Background: Volleyball has been my passion for almost 15 years now. I played at NORCO volleyball club, where Jared Rudiger another member of the volleyball division was my coach, and I played at Fossil Ridge High School. I then continued my career at Northwest Missouri State University where I still hold the No. 3 spot for career high set assists. My junior year I was a part of the team that started our season off 14-0 to break a school record.
Hobbies/Outside Interests: Sports and people are my two biggest passions! In addition to working full time and coaching club I am currently getting my masters degree in Performance Psychology (Sport Psychology). I love watching hockey and football, enjoy going to dinner and getting drinks with friends, enjoy being outside as much as I can, but really enjoy any activity if it includes family and friends.
Favorite trip: A family road trip. Drove from Fort Collins CO to New Port Beach CA. Spent some time enjoying the sunshine then drove up the coast and across Oregon and landed in Sandpoint ID to visit family. Then drove all the way home. In total the trip was over 2 weeks!
How did you find or first become associated with Triple Crown?: Jared Rudiger hired me as an intern a few years ago. After working in that position for eight months and a successful TC NIT I was hired full time. Due to COVID I was let go from the company after my furlough ran out. When Sean Hardy called me and asked if I would consider coming back, I didn't hesitate and came running back! TC has been a fantastic company for me to be with and I am very thankful to be back!
What intrigues you the most about Triple Crown?: The diversity of the staff and the values of the company. The staff here are incredible! We have so much fun together. I truly never feel like I am at work; I feel like I am hanging out with my friends planning kick-butt events.
