Sara Watson, MBA

Operations

I often get asked, “How does a philosophy major end up in the financial industry?” For me it was an easy transition. I’ve always enjoyed making connections with others and simplifying things to find out what’s important. As an Operations Associate at TCI Wealth Advisors, I use my philosophy training to help others define not only what is important to them but also what brings them joy. 

After earning my undergraduate degree in philosophy from the University of Arizona, I received my MBA from Grand Canyon University.  I’m a Tucson native and enjoy spending my free time with my husband, Jon, friends and family. I love traveling, hiking, trying new restaurants and playing with our two cats, Walter and Nigel.

community

What do you love about where you live/your community?

I am a Tucson native, and I have always loved living in a bigger city that has a small-town feel. No matter what your interests are, there is always so much to do and see and I am so appreciative of the sense of community that seems to surround everyone who lives here. You also cannot beat all the natural beauty of living in the desert between the mountains, sunsets, wildlife and plant life!

favorite

Favorite part of TCI:

My favorite part of TCI is the sense of a community we share in the workplace! I have never been a part of an organization that puts so much attention and care into their employees and clients alike and it has really made the biggest difference!
