Sarah Bechtel

Senior Sales Specialist

 

Sarah was born for this… literally! Even though she officially started with My Dad’s in 2005, she has been running around the store since she was a toddler because her mother worked here too. Over the last few years, Sarah has taken on the role of Senior Sales Specialist. When she is not on the sales floor, ordering products, or training new employees, she is keeping everyone on their toes with her encyclopedia of knowledge in all things flooring and beyond. In her down time, she enjoys playing darts and spending time with her husband and their five fur babies!
