Employee Spotlight: Sarah Phillips
Sarah Phillips joined the De Boer, Baumann & Company team for a tax internship in 2017 following her graduation from Grand Valley State University. She was hired full-time after the internship and works mostly with small to medium-sized businesses. Sarah is also a member of our marketing committee and handles a lot of our social media and marketing campaigns, as well as social events for the office.
Sarah’s favorite thing about working for De Boer, Baumann & Company is the flexible schedule and variety of work. She says, “I love that my schedule gives me the opportunity to be available for my kids during the day when needed, so I don’t have to miss their appointments and special events. I also like that I can switch between technical work and marketing work, so my brain doesn’t get bored.”
Sarah and her husband Ryan have been married for 10 years and live in Holland with their 3 young kids, Madelyn, Mason, & Kathryn. She has lived in the West Michigan area her whole life and loves living here mostly because her family is close by. She says, “I love spending time with my parents and extended family, and I want my kids to grow up having close relationships with their grandparents, cousins, and other relatives outside of our immediate family.”
While family commitments don’t leave Sarah with much free time, she enjoys gardening, fishing, boating, and traveling. She also likes Michigan summers when she can spend her days on the water with the kids, and evenings gathered around a bonfire with the adults.
