Sarah began her career as a bookkeeper in 1999 in Vernon, BC.
Sarah worked with a Chartered Accountant firm after receiving her Business Administration diploma from SAIT in Calgary, AB where she lived for 2 years.
She decided to pursue her accounting career and enrolled in the Certified Management Accountants program.
Sarah officially received her CMA designation in 2004.
Sarah opened Aries Accounting full time in 2009 with only a handful of clients and operated out of an office in her basement in West Kelowna, BC.
After much growth with the business, Aries Accounting made a move to an office in the Lakeview Heights Plaza in West Kelowna in October 2012.
Sarah had been on the Executive of the CMA Okanagan Chapter since 2010.
Her involvement included: regularly attending Executive Meetings, organizing social events, and promoting community volunteer events (such as the Apple Triathlon).
In June 2015, the Chartered Professional Accountants Act came into force.
This was a long process that took years of planning with the intent on unifying the three professional accounting bodies in BC (CA, CMA and CGA designations).
