Sarah Donnelly is a Marketing Specialist and Graphic Designer at Social Assurance. After graduating from college in December of 2017, Sarah accepted a full time position with the company and made the decision to move to Kansas City.
In the first half of this episode, I spoke with Sarah about the transition from college to working full time for a startup and how she stays healthy under pressure by focusing on her faith, dance and spending time with others.
During the second half of this episode, Sarah and I discussed the events of August 14th, 2017. At the time, Sarah was interning for Social Assurance and was housesitting/dog sitting for us while we were in Europe. Just moments after Sarah had returned from taking her cousins out for ice cream to celebrate the first day of school, our neighbor’s home exploded. The explosion caused damage to 43 homes in our neighborhood and later killed my neighbors who were both inside at the time of the explosion.
Sarah’s thoughtfulness, care and perception of life’s events is wise beyond her years. I spoke with Sarah about how life’s transitions affect us, whether expected or not, how we process them and how we move forward.
