Previously, Sachs was project coordinator of the Yampa Valley Legacy Education Initiative. The program developed multi-disciplinary projects centered on the legacy of the Yampa Valley for schools and area communities.
For eight years before that, Sachs practiced law, clerking for the federal courts Philadelphia, in the environmental department at Davis, Graham & Stubbs in Denver, and at Sharp and Barney LLC in Steamboat focusing on real estate, business and water law.
