Mom of the Month

Mom of the Month Lindsay Sakran with Loflin, 7, Atticus, 1, and husband Jason. 

Mom of two, Lindsay Sakran thinks that you can do just about anything if you put your nose to the grindstone and work hard. A project manager for Department of Defense who loves a good modern dance class and a good beer, she’s unexpected and tons of fun, but most of all she wants to be a good role model to 7-year-old daughter Loflin and 1-year-old son Atticus.

What is something that makes you unique, or that people would be surprised to know about you? I'm a mountain girl at heart and would spend all my days hiking in Asheville if I could.

What is something that has been on your mind lately? That I desperately need to weed the garden, but moments with the family or a book with a glass of wine keeps winning out.

What are you really good at? Dancing - a good ballet or modern class is good for the soul.

What’s your favorite quote, or piece of advice? "Mind, will, imagination, emotions, and intellect - five parts of who you really are. Work on them individually."

What is your favorite Lowcountry hangout spot, and why? I love the beach...but the Workshop is up there too.

What are three of your favorite things (besides your family)? My high school girlfriends who provide a support system beyond words, our new puppy who is very mischievous, and beer.

What are you most proud of? My hard work throughout my career - undergrad from UNC, graduate school in D.C. at American University, internship for an N.C. Congressman, a position with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and with DoD for the past 10 years...I feel that I take advantage of the opportunities I have come across and so enjoy my job. It makes me a better wife, mom and friend.
