Name: Sarah Jane Eaton

How long have you been with NEA: Almost a Year
Hometown: Vernal, UT
Describe what your normal day to day looks like.
At NEA/SWS I function as the receptionist- answering phones, emails, and directing customers to the team member who can best help them. I also work with our financial coordinator Jamin to ensure prompt payments, offering financing options to our customers, and organizing and filing our paperwork.
What is your favorite part of your job?
The people I work with; we have a great team led by a great boss.
What do you like about working at NEA?
We all work together, often wearing lots of different hats, to make everything work for our customers. We work hard, but we have a lot of fun.
What excites you the most about the solar industry?
Seeing people take their power needs in a sustainable direction, and empowering them to lower their carbon footprints.
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I worked for 5 years in the whitewater rafting industry and it’s one of the only outdoorsy, sporty things I really love.
What is your favorite hobby?
Well, I am finishing my Masters of Fine Art in September, so I guess art is my biggest hobby. I am primarily a portrait artist, but I also do performative work and costuming.
I also cosplay, a hobby where you create and wear a costume, usually based on comic, anime, or video game characters. I started in 2011, and went to my first comic convention in costume in 2013. I enjoy the whole process: planning out the costume components, sewing and fabricating the costume and props, styling the wigs and makeup, and then wearing it for events. It’s something I share with my best friends.
