Sajara grew up in Portland, Oregon and enjoys all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Sports and physical activity have always been an integral part of her life and she continues to play soccer, run (mostly 10k events), take Orangetheory classes, and spend time outdoors at swimming holes and camping in the warmer months. In addition to an active lifestyle, Sajara enjoys cooking, baking, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and tending to her ever-growing indoor plant collection.


After graduating from the University of Oregon in 2012 with a B.A. in Sociology and French, Sajara spent a year abroad living in France and traveling around Europe while working as an Au Pair. When she returned to the US, she taught as a French-immersion preschool teacher before switching paths to work in holistic healthcare and functional medicine. Between 2018-2020, Sajara completed post graduate coursework to become Human Nutrition Board Certified, specializing in sports nutrition for active adults and athletes. Sajara is excited to be working at Tangelo’s Portland location and is looking forward to being an integral part of the team!
