Alumni Profile Sarah Romain

Spring/Summer 2014

TU graduate Sarah Romain is grateful to the University for the faculty whom she believes are its greatest asset.

“For me, TU was full of mentors who truly cared and wanted me to be successful at life, not just academics,” said Romain. She named Brad Rees, Teresa Shafer, Laura Ketter, Miriam Fankhauser, Phyllis Watts, Bruce Bowlus, the Marions, and the Bells as those who taught her the most about the world.

Romain actually began her college career elsewhere, but was recruited by Brad Rees, Music Department Director, to sing in the University’s ProMusic group Up In The Air.

“My choice came after experiencing college life elsewhere and then realizing that TU was the perfect fit for my education and personal growth,” she said.

She graduated with her Bachelor of Business Administration in Management of Information Systems in 2004.

She was also involved in Residence Life and worked part-time, which taught her several lessons that have carried over into her career.

“Now being a business owner, I am definitely tapping into those old methods of organization, time management and prioritization,” Romain said.

She opened Proforma SR Marketing Solutions in 2013. The business provides a single outlet for printing, promotional products, wearable’s, and digital needs to all her clients.

David, her husband, works in construction. She feels their marriage is her greatest accomplishment because of the “incredible grit and tenacity” marriage demands.

Romain expressed sentiment for her time at TU, especially her experiences that the TU music and Residence Life programs provided.

“I’m really grateful for my time at TU,” she said. “I’m grateful for the memories, the fun, and the lessons. I’m grateful to the life-long lessons and friendships that TU gave me.”
