My Background

Sarah Smith, Financial Adviser


Sarah McAllister Local Financial Adviser in Daytona FL

Getting to know a little bit more about me...

I am a proud native of the Volusia County, Florida and have a vested interest in seeing my community as well as the surrounding communities succeed. I am dedicated to continued involvement and development in groups such as BPW (Business Professional Women), The Boss Lady Chapter in Volusia County, Phoenix Women's Group in Deland and the BNI Power Team in Port Orange. 

I received a Bachelors Degree from University of Central Florida in Marketing and Business. I have also gained further knowledge and experience through New York Life's signature program, NYLIC University. Additionally, I have qualified and attended additional education trainings that have helped me continue to build and develop my practice.

Why I love what I do...

During my adolescence both of my parents passed away and it was extremely difficult on our family. Through that process I realized how helpful additional planning would have been. I endured the hardest times when a few years after my father passed, we lost our family business and home due to the 2008 financial crisis. Meanwhile, I was caring for my mother who was fighting brain cancer which eventually led to her passing.

Despite the difficult hand life had dealt me, I was able to remain strong and continue on. I finished my bachelor's degree and accepted an internship with New York Life. Due to those experiences' my passion is to help families minimize risk as well as diversify and protect the wealth they worked so hard to accumulate.
