Director of Operations, Northwestern Mutual
Perfectionism: A Different Perspective
There are many titles that we as women hold. Previous versions of this woman include: recruiter, professional photographer, daycare provider, business owner, and most recently director at a major financial advising firm. However, if you meet Sarah, she will tell you the titles that mean the most to her are: wife, mother, friend, daughter-of-the-most-high – and at work – "Jackie of all trades".
Sarah began her career at Northwestern Mutual in 2011 and quickly learned that her strengths would be used to recruit and develop the firm's most productive financial advisors across the nation.
Her desire to help others succeed has spilled over into philanthropic efforts as well. She chairs a group who has raised over $100,000 to help local families dealing with the effects of pediatric cancer through an annual charity golf tournament.
Whatever Sarah does, she does with passion and heart – including taking care of her family. She and her husband, Andy, live in Sartell with their three children: Alexandra, Katelyn and William. In its simplest form, she can be introduced in just five words as described by the #1 New York Times Bestselling author Tom Rath: Woo, Communicator, Positivity, Adaptability and Maximizer.

If I'm not perfect, I feel like I fail. Dive in with me as we imperfectly explore this genuine concern that can hold us back from enjoying a full life.
