Sara Baker, CPA

Audit Manager

Meet Sara

Sara works extensively with not-for-profit organizations, including schools, membership organizations, and public charities, providing audit, tax, and consultation services. She is also experienced in compliance audits under the Uniform Guidance for organizations that receive federal funding, and audits of employee benefit plans. Sara loves volunteering with not-for-profit organizations outside of work, so to be able to apply her knowledge and passion in working with different not-for-profits allows her to help them achieve their goals. She is able to understand the unique opportunities and challenges that are specific to these organizations.

Sara began her accounting career in 2008 as an intern at Squire, Lemkin + Company LLP. She returned in 2009 after she graduated from college as a staff associate, preparing tax returns and performing financial statement audits. She has progressed through the company to her current position as Audit Manager.

Sara is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA). She is a passionate supporter of local charities that help provide Christmas gifts for under-privileged children in the community. Sara was a founding member of her high school’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter where she was the first President. During this time, she organized fundraisers to raise money for the scholarship program. Because of her dedication to the FBLA, and her desire to continuously help the community, her high school has had a scholarship set up in her name since she graduated in 2005, called the “Sara Heller Leadership Award”.

Sara graduated from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania in 2009 with a major in Accounting. She continued with her studies at The George Washington University, where she received her Master of Accountancy degree. She resides in Montgomery County, MD with her husband, Steven. In her personal time, she enjoys traveling, hiking, kayaking, and spending time with her family and friends.
