Sabrina joined the Air Force after high school and became a C-130 Loadmaster, delivering supplies, vehicles and materials all over the world. During this time, she earned her Associate degree in Aviation Operations. After eight years of military service, she moved back to her home state of Ohio where she earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration and her MBA from Kaplan University, while working as an HVAC service technician in her family’s business. Sabrina worked briefly as the Business Office Manager at an assisted living facility in Cincinnati. When Sabrina visited Wyoming with her family a few years ago, they decided a vacation was too short so they planned a permanent move to Casper. After moving to Casper, she was the Operations Manager/CFO at a plumbing and HVAC company prior to joining the CAEDA team. Sabrina is very excited to call Casper and Wyoming home. She enjoys adventuring through Wyoming where she can fish, camp, hike and ride her horse. She loves going on new challenging adventures and discovering uncharted territory.
