SARAH NORTON is a lifelong service industry worker who has devoted her career to helping others in the industry find much-needed resources that are not readily available through employers. As the Executive Director of Serving Those Serving, she feels strongly that self-care -- instead of self-abuse -- should be the badge of pride worn by hardworking industry staff. Her love for the industry has grown from 24 years of personal blood, sweat and tears, and she hopes to leave the industry better than she found it.

CARL ATIYA SWANSON is the Associate Director of Springboard for the Arts, managing Creative Exchange, a national platform sharing stories of artists with impact and toolkits for change. Carl is a theatermaker with Savage Umbrella, has worked as a freelance writer, and serves on the board of Dissonance, which advocates for health and wellness in creativity.

CAROLYN POOL, is an Ivy-award winning actor and co-creator of 2 Sugars Show, the comedy team behind Two Sugars, Room for Cream, and Sometimes There's Wine,

The 2 Sugars, Room for Cream team continue their comedic conversations about life, during that “little sliver of time in a woman’s life when you can either get pregnant or break a hip.” When there’s wine, the stories flow – from celebration and joy to nostalgia and regret (and sometimes questionable text messages). Laugh along as you bond over life’s funny circumstances.
