Sarah is a native North Carolinian, born and raised in Eastern North Carolina. As a child, Sarah enjoyed riding with her dad, a Western Southern Life insurance agent, to visit clients in their homes. It was through this experience, seeing how her father impacted clients’ lives, that she learned the value of helping people.
Sarah and her former husband owned and operated a successful garbage collection business in rural Franklin County, NC for more than 20 years. After selling the business, Sarah worked as a construction project manager working primarily on state contracts. She was later a corporate officer in 2 of the owner’s 3 businesses.
In 2009, seeing a turn in the construction business, Sarah decided to return to her roots helping families through the insurance industry. She quickly realized that to better serve her clients, she must take a holistic approach to their finances and entered the financial industry. “Really getting to know your clients is the only way to serve them properly.” Sarah is passionate about helping her clients prepare for retirement and life’s unexpected events. Helping a recent widow have peace of mind as she prepared for her retirement years was all it took for Sarah to know that the financial industry isn’t just about finances. It’s about people.
Sarah attended the University of North Carolina in Greensboro on a full academic scholarship. Sarah has 3 grown children and three granddaughters. She lives in North Raleigh with her Yorkie, Bailey where she enjoys attending Bayleaf Baptist church.
