Sarah Vingoe, a.k.a. Vings, is high-energy and enthusiastic and has a true love of life.
Vings was born and raised in Toronto but now calls Vancouver home and loves it here! In 2013, she made the move to Vancouv’ and never looked back!
She has a BA in sociology and anthropology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She spent her university career being told she needed to land a career in advertising post-graduation, but she didn’t really know what that meant.
After graduating in 2001, Vings hopped a plane to South Korea, where she taught English for a year. Thus began her obsession with travel and adventure.
Vings began her career in 2002 at Buck Productions on the Production side as an office manager/production coordinator/sales assistant and worked her way up to line producer, working on everything from advertising and corporate videos to reality TV and feature films.
In 2009, she was hired at TAXI Canada in Toronto as their in-house post-production manager, where she managed three in-house editors and post-produced all of the productions edited in house. After three years, Vings was promoted to content producer.
Vings has over 10 years’ experience in all things production and has worked in advertising for over six years. Today, Vings is proud to call herself an agency producer at Rethink.
Some fun facts about Vings:
Vings has run five marathons, including Boston, New York, and Chicago.
Vings has swam from West Van to Kits Beach—over 10K of open-water swimming!
Vings went to summer camp for 13 summers, from the age of six up to when she was 21 years old. She continues to volunteer at Camp Oochigeas, a camp for Children with Cancer, in Muskoka, Ontario. Summer 2017 will mark five years at Camp Ooch.
She was the shyest kid around—would not leave her mother’s side—until she went to summer camp when she was six. That’s when everything changed!
Vings has some of the best friends, best family and most beautiful people in her life. She holds every friend and family member close to her heart.
