Sarah Mast, Art Director
Sarah Mast is an award-winning Digital Art Director for The High Road Agency, based in her hometown, Johnson City, TN. To her, her job is more than designing annual reports, crafting full marketing campaigns, and building websites: it is sharing a story that needs to be told or raising awareness about issues that many never knew existed. She was introduced to the Touch A Life family in 2018 and traveled to the Care Center that fall where she gained a new understanding of the importance of sharing Touch A Life’s story and vision. Living in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and having a love for nature photography, she often finds herself on the many nearby hiking trails.

In addition to managing Find Your Mark’s social media accounts, Angie loves filling her time with her kids’ sporting events and musical theater shows, travel, and sweet time with family.

Ashley Myers lives in Oklahoma with her husband and two children, soon-to-be three as they are in the process of adopting. She took her first trip to Ghana in 2015 and became passionate about investing in the younger generation as they become the future leaders of their country. In 2018, she was able to work with a group of 20 boys in Ghana that had recently been rescued from forced labor in the fishing industry of Lake Volta, and she felt called to get more involved with changing the future for those children. That’s when she connected with TAL founder, Pam Cope, and traveled with her to the Care Center in 2019. Ashley knows there is an important role that each child at TAL will play in bettering their country and the futures of the generations to come.
