Sara Adams started her accounting career at Moss Adams, LLP in Medford, Oregon, after graduating from SOU in 2005 with a BS in Business Administration, emphasis in accounting. At Moss Adams from 2005 to 2008, Sara worked in the areas of tax and business assurance, providing services to clients mainly in the construction, medical and financial industries. In 2008 Sara moved from Moss Adams to a smaller, local accounting business where she worked closely with individuals and small businesses to provide tax, assurance and business consulting services. Sara graduated in 2013 from Golden Gate University with a Masters of Science in Taxation. Sara is a member of the Oregon Society of CPAs and the AICPA.

Sara was born and raised in Ashland and has strong connections with the business community throughout Southern Oregon. Since attending SOU, Sara had always wanted to return to teach accounting -- coming from a family of teachers, it was an inevitable move. Her time is mainly spent with her family - her husband, Ryan, whom she met at SOU, and her two daughters. In her free time Sara enjoys cooking, running, and spending time outdoors.
