Sarah Trustem

Executive Director

Introducing The Chamber’s Executive Director, Sarah! Originally from Dickinson, North Dakota, Sarah is also a Dickinson State University graduate with her Master of Public Administration from the University of Mary in 2017.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Most of my free time is spent with my husband, eight-year-old daughter, and 2 dogs.

What’s something about yourself that would surprise people?

I am a homebody and love transitioning into a ponytail and sweats as soon as I get home.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you be? Why?

Probably Olivia Pope, but only when she was still wearing the “white hat.”

What’s your favorite genre of music to work to?

I am a huge fan of all genres so my radio switches anywhere from Conway Twitty to Aerosmith to Dave Matthews Band to newer hits.

Name something on your bucket list.

Skydiving, even though I am petrified of heights.

What drew you to the Chamber?

The challenge, the people, and the community.

We couldn’t be happier to have Sarah leading the team. Stop by our office for a visit!
