Access Publishing welcomes new office manager
Sarah Bolyard puts customer service first at local publishing, advertising and marketing company
Scott Brennan, CEO of Access Publishing, welcomed Sarah Bolyard recently as the newest member of his growing team. As the office manager, Bolyard is the first face clients see when they arrive at the Access Publishing office and also often the friendly voice they hear when they call for inquiries about the many services offered at the local publishing, advertising and marketing company. Access Publishing is the parent company of the Paso Robles Daily News.
“Just about everything in my background includes customer service – I have a strong belief that the customer comes first and I take pride in helping them find the best solutions for their needs,” Bolyard said. “I have a passion for helping others find their own passion so they can be the best they can be.”
Saying Access Publishing is a “professional but fun place to work,” Bolyard stressed its important place in the local community. She said the opportunity to work with her fellow professionals at Access allows her to put into action the objectives that she has learned and practiced over the years while having the opportunity to “be part of something big.”
“When Sarah joined our team at Access Publishing,” Brennan said, “she was welcomed as a major component to the overall operations of our company. Her fellow co-workers and I are thrilled to have her working alongside us.”
Access Publishing produces Paso Robles Daily News, among other online publications. Access Publishing’s media properties include the San Luis Obispo Visitors Guide, North County Access, Your Cambria Phone Book, Templeton Chamber Guide, the Heritage Ranch and Oak Shores directories.
After taking time to raise her children, Bolyard re-entered the work force as an office assistant while working toward and obtaining her degree in Organizational Management. Born and raised in San Jose, CA, she met her husband, Ken, a now-retired Navy man. They welcomed two children, Jason and Elizabeth, while living a military life that took the family to Washington, Oklahoma, and finally back home to the California Central Coast. Currently residents of Santa Margarita, the Bolyards recently celebrated 31 years of marriage and are eager to find a home in the greater Templeton or Paso Robles area. In addition to their two children, the Bolyard family includes daughter-in-law Caryn, their grandchild, Avery, and two Chihuahuas – Chico and Scooter.
“We love the Central Coast – the ocean, the country hillsides, and the smell of the old Oak trees in the summer,” Bolyard said. “Our motivations for moving to and working in Paso Robles include living closer to family, namely my sister and her family in Atascadero, as well as being of service to others and a valuable part of our community.”
In her spare time, Bolyard enjoys spending time with her family and friends, attending church, listening to jazz, and going on long walks on the beach with her husband.
