Her fun-loving attitude, bubbly personality, and her dedication to her clients are what sets her aside. 

Sarah is a dedicated parent to her two sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and two grand-doggies.  She is a proud member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and serves diligently as a nursery leader.  She often quotes how much she loves her “Littles.”  Occasionally you’ll hear Sarah shout out “Whoo-aah!!” when she balances her books, or hears her clients are happy.

She currently lives in her childhood home town of Pleasant Grove, Utah but always speaks about how she always wants to move to Oregon.  For now, she is excited to be a part of our team.  Upon her hiring she said “why didn’t I just work with a CPA Firm from the get go?”  We are thrilled to have Sarah oversee the bookkeeping department and look forward to her continued growth within the Jones team!
