Sara is responsible for the success of her team and her Client’s satisfaction. In addition to the day to day operations, she brings her unique background in the insurance industry to specialize in Employer Group Relations and Strategies. Sara is uniquely qualified to discuss the spectrum of Benefits and Insurance to individual clients and with her team, she is committed to personally work with them to achieve their Benefit requirements. Sara’s business philosophy centers on differentiating Benefits Concepts from the large corporate firms that offer the “1 size fits all” view of the ever changing and highly complex world of Benefits and Insurance.
Sara has deep roots in South Carolina. She was raised in Holly Hill, SC and traveled the 75 miles to The College of Charleston for her college experience. As a talented pianist, she earned her BA Degree in Music and History. Like most college students, she needed a part time job and in 2001 served as an intern at a local area insurance company, The Nash Agency. As most interns do, she cycled through many roles in the agency, including Customer Service, employee enrollments, re-marketing of employer-sponsored plans, individual health plans, and Medicare Sales. In other words, she worked her way up from “the mailroom”, which made her attractive to one of the Industry’s most well known firms, Blue Cross Blue Shield of SC. In 2006 Sara joined the corporate world of Benefits and Insurance, which has provided her with an invaluable knowledge base that she now brings to Benefits Concepts. It gives her the perspective to offer her clients a non-corporate experience with all the awareness of the large company processes.
After joining Blue Cross Blue Shield SC in 2006 Sara began a journey of varied and extensive experience. At BCBS she serviced small groups, participated in the opening of the SC Blue Store, managed a territory of Licensed Agents in the Low Country as a Marketing Representative. She also learned the importance of giving back to the community, a practice she continues today. In 2012 Sara was presented an opportunity to join Benefits Concepts, which allowed her to bring her expertise to a non-corporate environment. Her sole purpose was to develop expertise and implementation of a Medicare transition pathway for Benefits Concepts clients. Her client success and relationships made it easy for her to take the next step in her career, one that became available in 2018. The owners of Benefit Concepts decided it was time for retirement and the business was available. Sara knew the time for her to bring her vision of service to the industry had arrived.
What makes Sara special when she is not serving her clients? Sara and her husband, Marcus DeBiasi, are committed to Charleston and are raising their two young sons to appreciate the marshes, the beaches, the arts, the culture, the community, and the people of this area. This requires her off hours to be spent at swimming lessons (EVERY child needs to know how to swim), Ninja Class, making Christmas cookies, fixing wonderful meals, arranging flowers, and even playing the piano when she gets a chance. Her community involvement has included Team Captain for the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce Total Resource Campaign, Board Member of the Charitable Society of Charleston, and Treasurer of the Lowcountry Association of Health Underwriters. On Sundays Sara and her family can be found in the pews of the Circular Church, just a few steps from the altar where they were married in 2010.
