Sara Atehortua '18
Sara Atehortua ’18 attended Norwalk Community College and transferred to UCONN Stamford in Fall of 2016. She graduated from UCONN in the Fall of 2018 majoring in Financial Management.
Sara was lucky enough to be employed by Northern Trust even before I graduated. For the past three years, she has been an investment analyst within Asset Management. She has worked in the equity, fixed income and real assets team. Her role mainly consists of conducting research to help formulate investment recommendations. Apart from her regular analyst role I have also taken part in diversity initiatives within my company.
Over the years Sara has learned the importance of networking. For that reason, being a member in several networking groups is a big part of her life. She is an active member in various organizations including Mujeres de HACE (board member),Ellevate, 100 Women in Finance, NICSA Diversity Project and ALPFA. Sara was fortunate enough to find her mentor in one of these organizations.
“My mentor has inspired, motivated, and served as my role model. I hope with this program I am able to do the same for someone else.”
