We are very excited to announce that Chief Operating Officers at Ultra Machining Company (UMC) will make an appearance this year!

Sarah’s journey is notably a testament to her personal growth, but it is also a story about dedication, resilience, and the power of making a positive impact. Although she will not be a keynote speaker, Sarah will grace the stage to share her impactful experiences.

Her story begins with a solid foundation in education. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering, Sarah embarked on a career in Detroit as a Technical Service Manager for Dofasco USA. Driven by a pursuit of knowledge, she went on to earn a Master of Science in Engineering Management while still embracing life, getting married, and starting a family. 

After a pivotal period at Electrolux, she discovered her true passion beginning her new career. As a Quality Engineer with UMC. Over a 12-year professional journey with the company, she has reached her current position as the Integrator and COO. Due to her commitment to excellence, Sarah and the purpose-driven culture an UMC align perfectly. As an Integrator, Sarah works to ensure that all of UMC’s operations align with their central purpose – enhancing lives through manufacturing. 

Aside from work, Sarah is also an avid volunteer, using her vast skillset to benefit a variety of organizations which leaves a positive impact on people. Thanks to her multifaceted approach to leadership, her methods and ideas not only encompass the boardroom but also the broader community. 

At the TeamWomen 2024 Leadership Conference, Sarah’s story is set to impact and inspire attendees. Her participation at this year’s event underscores the importance of collaboration and mentorship. Attendees can anticipate a narrative that reaches far beyond the traditional career trajectory. This will be the story of a woman who found her passion, overcame challenges, and continues to make a positive impact on others through her leadership skills and volunteer efforts.
