2021 - 2022 Board of Directors

Sage Hunt


Sage Hunt currently works at the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada as a Special Events Manager, focusing on fundraising events. Sage started out as a middle school Special Education teacher (and competitive cheerleading coach!) but ultimately decided that her passion was in special events. She made a bold move and switched careers, starting out at a local venue, then transitioning to an event rental company. After learning the vendor side of events, she found her passion in planning. She now gets to combine her two passions, planning & helping youths, in her current role. 

Always striving to learn more, Sage continued her education at The International School of Hospitality (TISOH), where she received a Certificate in Conference Management and Event Planning. Sage is also graduate of UNLV, holding both a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Master’s of Education.

Sage can be found on the weekends at concerts and music festivals with her boyfriend, Andy, or snuggling with her pups, Duncan & Leo.
