“My job is to do about 20 different jobs.” - Sara Kraft, Administrative Mgr.
Sara joined AFC in September of 2015. She’s a 2014 graduate from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities with a B of A in Medieval History.
Although she’s “officially” AFC’s Administrative Manager, she helps maintain detailed records, assists in client communication, updates online databases, and is the first touch point for 401(k) administrative assistance. She also supports AFC’s online presence (web campaigns, website content, and live-Tweeting during About Money). Sara produces About Money Radio, seeking Seattle’s Business leaders to join us on the show. Basically, if it’s administrative…Sara is on it.
