Hi Sarah! What did you enjoy most about working at Pickett Street, and what will you miss?
What I enjoyed most wasn’t what I actually did, but who I did it for. I loved being part of a team who supported me, pushed me out of my comfort zone, and helped me grow personally and professionally.

I will miss going to the office (Command Central) every day, meeting weekly with the team, talking with Mo during our weekly goal meetings, hearing the bell ring every time we make an appointment, and hearing Jesse laugh. What I will miss most is the people. Without Jesse and Margaret, I wouldn’t be where and who I am today.

Tell me about this next step in your professional journey.
Two years ago I found my passion for health and fitness and became a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. I want to create safety outside of others’ comfort zones so that I can impact their lives. It’s not easy to make a health change, and I want to act as a resource. My mission is to help people reach the best version of themselves that fits their lifestyle.

My life motto: take care of your body, and it will take care of you! My goal is to live for as long as I can while impacting as many lives as possible.

What has Pickett Street taught you that you are eager to bring to your future work?
Margaret and Jesse taught me that opportunities are everywhere and that I have to be open to them. Things don’t just come to you—you have to put in the work.
Also, bodybuilding is much more than just a physical sport. Self-improvement of any kind centers on focus, consistency, and patience. Visualize what you want and don’t let fear or excuses hold you back.

Favorite memories with Pickett Street?
After only working with the team for 3 months, we all took a trip to Maui to celebrate reaching a big sales goal. We bonded as a team, and I am grateful to have been included.
Also, I held a webinar about transaction coordination, and over 100 people registered. I was extremely nervous, but after completing the webinar I felt such a rush of accomplishment! Several people reached out to me afterwards to say thank you and ask questions. I called the experience “becoming famous within the real estate admin community.” It just felt good to reach people from all over the world and impact them in some way.
And finally, any time Jesse cooked steaks for the team!

Thank you so much, Sarah! I can’t wait to follow you as you in your new career.
