Friday Five with Sarah Kinsey

Friday Five featuring Coker Cobra and design extraordinaire, Sarah Kinsey.

What brought me to Hartsville

Finding an awesome little college (Coker) that would allow me to play soccer and to get degrees in graphic design and business.  Then finding an awesome job as a Graphic Specialist at Sonoco that has allowed me to use my degrees and have fun doing it!



Born in Tallahassee Florida (Go Noles!!) but my family lives in Auburn, Alabama (War Eagle!!)

How long I've been in Hartsville

About 5 years off and on

In real life I...(what your job is)

Create all sorts of fun graphics for the Marketing department at Sonoco.   

Three things to know about me

  1. I absolutely love and obsess over my dog, Tiesto.
  2. I've moved around a lot when I was younger so I have no problem exploring and trying new things
  3. I'm social, active, crafty, and silly

In my spare time you can find me

Enjoying the weather with my dog, cooking, trying to make some DIY project or playing video games  

My favorite local hotspot



What I love most about this town

I love the sense of community in this town.  We may be small town, but we have a big heart (pun intended) and a desire to reach out, which I think is great. I've lived in big cities, small towns, and planned communities but Hartsville is the one place that has inspired me to do more with my community.

My favorite local food

Bow Thai Cuisine



I'm involved in HYP because I love being social and active wherever I go and I felt like this was a great opportunity to become more engaged with other people my age who are in the same stages of life as me.

My advice for someone new to town

Don't sit in your house, go out! You can go pretty much anywhere and meet a friendly face. People around here love to show off their town, explore and you'll find out we have a lot to offer!
