For Sarah, the recipe for success has simple but crucial ingredients. “I enjoy cooking,” she says, “and for a dish to work I need to practice repeatedly, focus on one thing at a time, and pay attention to detail. And all of these characteristics help me work better, too.”
Before joining Lightspeed Sarah worked as an accounting manager for a PE firm, but after nine years was drawn to the idea of working with innovators who are striving to make the world a better place to live. “It’s exciting to see entrepreneurs achieve their dreams, and it’s amazing that some of their ideas could change our lives,” she says. “It makes me more open to change.”
Sarah counts the Lightspeed family dynamic as one of the key factors in her own personal success as well. She loves that her job is fulfilling and meaningful, fostered by a culture of mutual respect and a collective drive for excellence, and is looking forward to welcoming like-minded entrepreneurs and founders into the Lightspeed family.
