Sarah Ettman, Principal/Producer, Nuvigreen Productions
“ Bula! That’s Fijiian for “hello.” I love producing original content for clients that's creative and accurate in representing their product or service. I also enjoy documentary film-making about people and the natural world. It’s a sensory experience that’s the perfect combination of visual, audio and written communication. What's cool is it provides a teachable moment for positive change.
Writing is my forte. Some of my favorite topics are the ocean environment, healthcare, biotechnology, human-interest stories, interviews, and testimonials - anything that offers me an opportunity to learn/write about new subjects. I incorporate my own proprietary blend of education through entertainment, aka "edutainment." I am honored to work with clients, both small and large, who put their trust in me to represent their brand and image in the best possible light.”
The details: A magna cum laude graduate of Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts with a degree in biology/marine ecology and minor in education, Sarah also holds a post-graduate degree in Women and Leadership from Antioch University. She is a life-time member of Phi Beta Kappa. Previously, she served as Director of Communications for Sansum Diabetes Research Institute. For 10 years she was responsible for the editorial voice of Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society. During her tenure with Mr. Cousteau, she created content for his website, blog, column in Diver Magazine and articles for major magazines. Sarah helped produce Ocean Adventures, a PBS television series now in international broadcast. In addition to her 25 years of experience in the non-profit sector, Sarah served in marketing management for biotech and software corporations. Her client list features depth and breadth: Dow Chemical Corporation, Paramount Studios (The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water), PBS/KQED, cosmetic (La Prairie), fashion (Under Armour, Gant, Tilley Collectibles), bio tech (vision care, disease detection), software (research, education, database), medical (diabetes care), and financial planning companies, as well as international environmental NGO's, independent publishers and sole proprietorships.
Sarah was born and raised in Miami Shores, Florida., where she attended Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart. She is a curious and avid international traveler with a passion for tropical islands. Fiji’s coral reefs, Belize’s tropical rain forests, Paris and the South of France hold a special place in her heart, as do her beloved sons, Nick and Niles. When she's not dreaming up concepts for Instagram videos or drafting media for clients, you can find Sarah snorkeling in the ocean or volunteering in the (warm!) aquatic therapy pool at her local rehabilitation hospital.
