Sara’s Bio

Email Sara

An accountant for over 30 years, Sara Laidlaw started her career with a small firm on Hilton Head Island, SC in 1982. She joined the firm of Spillane, Rhoads, Lebey and Seig, CPAs in 1984 as admin staff and a compilation accountant. She was the Director of Accounting Services when the firm merged with Price Waterhouse in 1987. A year later, she purchased the write-up department from Price Waterhouse and founded Accounting Services Bureau, Inc.

In 2000, after reaching a staff of six, Sara decided to downsize her client base and staff and now enjoys working out of her property located on Wilmington Island.

Formerly from Charlotte, NC, Sara resides on Wilmington Island with her husband, Mark and enjoys singing in the Sacred Heart Catholic Folk group on Sunday nights.
