Sarah Markell
Tax Director, Asset & Wealth Management – State & Local
Texas Wall Street Women Volunteer Status: Austin City Head & Austin Philanthropy Committee Chair
Why did you choose to become a volunteer?
I am passionate about women’s education and partnering with YWPN allows me to work with students focusing on STEM education. To see these young women grow and succeed in these areas of expertise is inspiring and motivating.
How have networking groups like Texas Wall Street Women helped your career?
TXWSW has allowed me to connect with other women in the industry that I might have not met in a normal circumstance. It has been great getting to know fellow professional women and also learning about their career progression and experience in the industry of asset management.
What is your current favorite book or podcast regarding personal growth, female empowerment, and or career advice?
Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson is a great book about being flexible and ready to adapt to any situation that comes along. Texas Wall Street Women is a non-profit networking group that supports its members in their career growth by offering valuable networking and educational opportunities. We also give back to our community through our partnership with the Young Women’s Preparatory Network that provides college preparatory education to underserved girls across Texas. We provide our entire programming with an all-volunteer staff who all have successful finance careers and still have time to volunteer to help other women achieve their goals.

Do you know a Limitless Leader making a difference in finance? We encourage you to share this with your mentors, friends, and colleagues so that we can celebrate their achievements and success by becoming a member of Texas Wall Street Women.
