Best part of her job: As an actuary, Sarah Klein, Math’03, assesses financial risk and consults with companies on their employee benefit plans, specifically their pharmacy benefits.

She loves sitting in front of CEOs or CFOs and translating technical insurance concepts into something meaningful to them and their employees. As a 28-year-old woman in a male-dominated industry, she says it’s rewarding to know that she has overcome those obstacles and brings something valuable to the table.

Job: Consulting Actuary, Assistant Vice President

Employer: Lockton Companies

Making a difference: Klein lives in downtown Kansas City, Mo., where she sees homelessness every day. She serves on the board at reStart, a homeless shelter that helped more than 7,500 people last year. She enjoys using her skills to serve others. Not surprisingly, she has spent several years on the finance committee.

On her time at Rolla: When she was a student, her license plate proudly read “DIFFYQ.” She credits her tough S&T classes for teaching her how to solve problems and giving her the confidence to know she can figure out just about anything if she puts her mind to it.
