Energized, creative and organized, Sara Santoliquido works toward making the world, and especially Austin, a better place. At Cisco Systems, she leads the development and global adoption of a new, innovative application. Santoliquido and her service animal, Tustin, are popular in the office and greatly involved. She is a vital part of Cisco’s Civic Council, co-leads Connected Women ATX, is a board member of Girls in Tech Austin and gets it all done with the utmost passion and tenacity. For this and her undying ability to make things happen, her colleagues have deemed Santoliquido a “magical unicorn.” Producing the Girls for Progress conference, planning the Girl Scouts of Central Texas Women of Distinction luncheon, volunteering at the Austin Diaper Bank and using her graphic-design skills for numerous Austin nonprofits are just a few of her many accomplishments. It’s her faith, family and fur babies that keep her motivated and determined.
