Business Experience

Sarah began her financial services career in 1997 and joined BB&T Scott & Stringfellow in 2018. Over the course of her 20 year career in the industry, Sarah has been involved in all aspects of strategy research and execution - most recently a partner managing over $1B in assets.

Investment Philosophy

The core of Sarah’s investment philosophy is based on holistic goal-based planning and management. She is results-driven and a firm believer she cannot lead her clients to success without understanding all aspects of their financial landscape and long and short-term goals.

She uses fundamental and technical analysis to weigh the risk of each portfolio as it relates to her clients investment objectives and risk tolerance. Her goal is to manage the portfolios for growth while mitigating the downside risk, which she considers equally important. As with many things in life, she believes communication and a true understanding of a client’s emotional involvement is critical to the success of the relationship.
