Human Resources Manager Sarah L H Lowndes, PHR
Sarah l H Lowndes, PHR

 I am a proud Charleston native.  I grew up in the Lowcountry with my wonderful parents, Henry and Esther, both of whom I respect immensely, my older sister and best friend, Alice, and our high-energy Jack Russell Terriers, Riot, Libby, and Hannah.  I am an alumni of Ashley Hall ’02 in downtown Charleston and graduated from the College of Charleston in December of 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.  I earned my MBA with a Concentration in Human Resources from Charleston Southern University in 2013.

My sister and I are quite fortunate to have parents who understood the benefits of traveling, and thus were able to visit some of the great highlights of the United States growing up.  My love for traveling and exploring our country and places around the world continues to this day.

 During undergrad, I participated in Semester at Sea, a study abroad program, spending a semester traveling around the world, visiting and immersing myself into the cultures of 10 countries, all while taking a full course load of classes.  It was the experience of a lifetime and remains a top highlight in my life!

I completed a 7-week road trip around the US, mostly solo, visiting 39 states and traveling just over 11,000 miles in the summer of 2015.  As a result of my road trip, I have been fortunate to have now visited and explored all 50 states, all of which are beautifully unique in their own way.

I share a love for the outdoors, adventure, and our National Parks with my dad.  We have been on several multi-day whitewater rafting river trips out West, rafting the Snake, Middle Fork of the Salmon, and Rogue Rivers.  In September 2015, just days after completing my road trip, we rafted 226 river miles down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon over the course of 14 days.  It was an absolutely epic adventure!

I currently live in Downtown Charleston with my 2 sassy senior dogs, Reese and Montana.  When I am not working, my favorite hobbies include photography, writing, learning to play guitar, reading, spending time with friends and family, and volunteering for Waters Edge Great Dane Rescue as their staff photographer.  Several of my photographs are on display at Avondale Wine & Cheese in West Ashley as well as in the Charleston office.  I write a blog – girljeeproad.com – where you can read about my travels and comical tales of life’s adventures.  

Professionally, I have enjoyed a successful career in Human Resources for over 11 years.  I have held my PHR certification since 2006 and am a certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.  I most recently worked for Textron Systems Corporation in the Aerospace and Defense industry as the HR Operations Manager.  I relocated to Baltimore, MD in 2011 for the opportunity to work out of the company headquarters with the larger HR team.  I advanced within the organization into a leadership role fairly quickly and learned a great deal about HR, leadership, and business from a wonderful team of mentors.  After almost 9 years with Textron Systems, I relocated back to sunny Charleston to join C.T. Lowndes & Company as the HR Officer in October 2015.

Time has flown by since joining the Agency; as I continue to learn about the insurance industry, the respect I have for our employees grows exponentially – I am so impressed by the level and diversity of talent that we have here!  I am honored to be part of the 6th generation of the Lowndes family in the business, and I look forward to being part of the Agency for the remainder of my professional career.

Thank you for doing business with C.T. Lowndes & Company, we sincerely appreciate our customers and look forward to continuing to build a trusted relationship with you.
