Early life & education
A native of Setagaya, Tokyo, Satō received a bachelor's degree from Sophia University, a master's degree in international relations from Columbia University, and a Ph.D in economics from the New York University. She began her career in 1988 as an economist at Nikko Citigroup, and later worked for JPMorgan Chase and Credit Suisse First Boston.
Satō was elected to the House of Representatives for the first time in 2005, as part of a group of candidates (later called "Koizumi Children") hand-picked by Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi. Sato was sent as an "assassin" to defeat Seiko Noda in the Gifu 1st district, Noda having left the LDP after opposing Koizumi's plan to privatize Japan Post. Noda prevailed in the district, but Sato won a seat through the proportional representation list.
Sato and Noda publicly made amends prior to the 2009 general election, in which Sato was assigned to run for a different seat representing Tokyo. Sato lost this race, but was elected to the House of Councillors in 2010.
