PWN Featured Member: Sarah Specht, Financial Advisor, Northwestern Mutual

I started with Northwestern Mutual in the summer of 2014, after working in various marketing positions. Never was a career in finance on my radar and now I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

Being a career-changer in this industry can be both scary and exciting. I provide my clients with a customized approach to financial planning. The financial marketplace is large and can be intimidating and I hope that through meeting with my clients I can alleviate some of the stress that finances can bring us.

I joined PWN to network with other women and because helping women understand finances and their options is a passion of mine. I believe in “Women Helping Women” and enjoy meeting people.

Please give me a call if you are interested in learning more about financial planning; consultations are always free.
