Aries Accounting is a tax preparation, accounting, and bookkeeping services firm, who offers quality service to small and medium sized businesses in and around the Okanagan Valley. By using an experienced accountant, we can help you to save time and find ways to save you money!
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).
You can find us on LinkedIn under the Group – Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia. For more information about the CPA designation please visit www.BCCPA.ca.
Sarah is active in the community and supporting local events like the anti-bullying campaign for national Pink Tshirt Day, annual fundraising for animal charities, as well as taking part in organized sports such as Ringette and ladies hockey.
Sarah regularly volunteers for the SPCA. She takes part in the annual Paws For A Cause and sells Frisbees at the local West Kelowna Warriors hockey games.
Watch for the annual drive that takes place at Aries Accounting during Tax Season collecting donations for a local animal shelter. A great opportunity to drop off items for the shelter while also getting your taxes done! In 2013 and 2014 Aries Accounting collected donations for the BC SPCA and in 2015, 2016, and 2017 our featured charity was the Okanagan Humane Society. We are proud that with your support, our 2015 drive raised over $500 and in 2016 we raised over $1000 in donated items and cash contributions. For 2018 we are collecting donations to support the Westside Community Foodbank.
Sarah’s love of animals is huge! Just like her dog Tyson – a Great Dane/Rottweiler cross. Tyson regularly visits the office and likes to stand guard at the front door (but he’s really a big softie!).
