Sarah M is Yelp’s Community Director in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Back in 2013, she launched Tulsa Yelp, and since then the 918 has grown into a beautiful and thriving community! She is all about babies (especially her own), playing and enjoying live music, backyard bonfires, imbibing well and dancing with her bodacious husband. We caught up with her in her midtown home where she resides.
What did you do before working at Yelp?
My postgrad has served up a whole lotta life. I’ve been challenged by and have grown via varied experiences, mostly in working with the arts. How it helps my #Yelplife? Most everything you’ll find in my resumé involves some kind of creative community building. Yelp is a powerful connector to great local businesses, but also to some of the best people you’ll meet.
What’s your favorite thing about representing Tulsa on Yelp?
Our community is so passionate to share through Yelp what makes this beautiful city so vibrant. I love the opportunity to explore the nooks and crannies with our crew and help spread the groovy-ness.
What’s a great local business that you discovered because of Yelp?
The list is endless, but I’ll go with Foot Joy Spa! A cheap full hour body massage? I’ll take 27.
How would you spend a perfect Saturday in Tulsa?
Saturdays in Tulsa are full of impeccable dreamy hours. A really, really good daydream would include a morning trip to a class at SALT Yoga to begin the day feeling fresh as a daisy. From there I’d venture to Chimera to consume all the breakfast tacos, caffeine, juice and a side of potatoes with ‘dat crema. From there I’d beep bop over to Guthrie Green with my Mister Baby, Colin Morgan & Mister Olof (the dog) for some splash pad fun. I’d shop-bop over to Cherry St. and buy some divine locally made candles from The Nest. The day would conclude with dinner and 1 or 2 (or 3) spicy margs at Cafe Ole!
If you could take one local celebrity to lunch, where would you go and with whom?
I’d love to have the opportunity to hangout with our new Mayor Elect, GT Bynum and our families! He and his family’s vision for Tulsa is turbo-rad. I’d say we meet at Dilly Diner and invade the picturesque back patio!
