Sarah Knowles

Sarah Knowles
Client Manager

Sarah followed the numbers through the legal, SOE and corporate sectors until she found her place at Sterling Accountants. She has a real affinity with numbers and her penchant for detail means she is a perfect fit for our office. One of our vibrant client managers, Sarah has worked with a wide range of clients in many industries, however, she is especially great with sole traders, rentals and all tax compliance.

Sarah LOVES computers and is our office computer guru for software and programming issues. She is always looking for a quicker, better way to do things and will always manage to spot a time saving solution or option.

Sarah is a devoted mum of four boys which doesn't leave much time for other activities. When they are older and child car seats are a distant memory, she plans on taking a big trip on her motorbike and rekindling her passion for salsa dancing. When enough sleep is granted, she is a "Collector of Trivia" and her cake decorating talents are envied by many.
