From Customer Experience to Research and Development, a core tenet of Therabody’s company culture is that the next big idea or product innovation can come from anyone at any level. Since our founder’s journey to create the first-ever Theragun to relieve his own debilitating pain, real stories and real people have always been at the heart of who we are and why we are on a mission to help everybody take control of their wellness and recovery.
So, we’re taking you behind the scenes at Therabody to highlight the real people who are helping make that mission a reality every day — the best and brightest from around the globe.
Meet Sara Dickerson, our LA-based Senior Director of Content Production Operations, the detail-oriented powerhouse who brings Therabody content to life.
What is your favorite part of working at Therabody?
I love the people and I believe in the products. The women in this company are all powerhouses and I’m inspired daily by their creativity, expertise, and poise. The products have also been a game-changer for me. I sometimes can’t believe I used to just deal with pain.
Give us a quick breakdown of your role and what you do at Therabody.
I am the Senior Director of Content Production Operations. I oversee an exceptionally talented team of producers, editors, and project managers tasked with creating all the content you see from Therabody. From brand marketing, athletes/ambassadors, PR, Social, and Education, we do it all.
If you could do someone else’s job at Therabody for a week, what would it be and why?
Lissa Bankston is our brilliant Director of Human Performance and I would love to do her job – although I would be woefully underqualified! She travels around the country teaching people how to use our products. I love that she gets to see people’s faces the first time they feel a Theragun on them.
It’s lunch time! What is your go-to?
Tatsu Ramen on Melrose, hands down. Old Skool ramen with an egg. Great, now I’m starving!
Walk us through any secret to success you have for working from home.
I’m still trying to figure it out and struggle with the balance. On one hand, I love not spending two hours of my day in traffic, but it can also be easy to sit down, start working, and not get up for a few hours. My goal is to take some time to step away from my computer, whether it’s taking a walk every day, or eating lunch outside.
Favorite movie or show?
Everything but fish. I’m a foodie.
Cats or dogs? Do you have any pets?
I have asthma and am allergic to cats, so no pets for me, but I love dogs.
Favorite Therabody product?
Favorite musical artist or group?
I love West Coast hip hop (from the Bay to LA)!
