Like A Girl: Dare To Dream presents
Sarah Williams-Scalise is the founder of Sarah's Dumps, a frozen Korean-style dumpling company. She is also an insurance agent with a real estate portfolio and a passion for community. Sarah was born in South Korea and adopted at five months old. She was raised in Upstate New York, and earned her BA in International Business. After studying abroad in Spain, she moved to Boston. As she made her way down the east coast to Rhode Island, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, and now Charleston, Sarah hopped around to a multitude of jobs, big and small companies, and finally found the perfect fit with Blueprint Insurance Group, a boutique independent insurance agency tucked in the I'on neighborhood of Mount Pleasant.
Through her career, she connected to the local business community, which encouraged her and supported her as she and her husband began Sarah's Dumps. Organizations such as Lowcountry Local First and Creative Mornings helped propel her company into 2021. Sarah truly believes that it is the special (and unique) culmination of ethnic food, insurance, and intense support for the Charleston community that makes each day, week, and year an adventure. Sarah's advice is "Do not limit yourself to one industry, one bucket, one silo, one degree. There is enough to go around if you're open to it all. Adventure awaits!"
