Employee Spotlight - Sarah Forbes
This edition of the Forbes & Company Employee Spotlight features our Administrative Manager, Sarah Forbes. She obtained a Marketing degree from the University of Georgia, and she plays an integral part in the success of our firm with her wide range of responsibilities from client relations to anything but the actual accounting work. She is married to Forbes & Company’s managing partner, Steve Forbes, and they have two beautiful daughters. Working together with Steve to achieve business success drives Sarah, and she loves that they’re tackling it together. She enjoys how the flexibility and variety in her ever-changing role at the firm keep her work life interesting. We asked Sarah some questions, and we invite you to get to know her better through her following responses to those questions.
If you could do another job just for one day, what would it be?
I think it’d be fun to have some kind of merchandising job. I worked at a jewelry and gifts boutique in high school and always thought I’d enjoy owning a business like that.
Where is your favorite place to be?
Anywhere with my family!
Do you have a hobby? If so, what do you enjoy?
I love reading and listening to live music. We also have an 8-month-old puppy that requires a lot of attention... so he takes up a good part of my free time!
Where is the best place you have traveled, and what makes it the best?
I loved going to Paris, and I hope to go back some day. Seaside, Florida, is my favorite driving-distance spot.
What is your favorite music genre?
Indie pop, although my playlists are generally pretty eclectic. We love going to music festivals and concerts, and I always enjoy discovering new music.
What is one accomplishment you are most proud of?
Raising our wonderful girls, Anna and Maddie!
What is the most unusual item in your desk drawer?
My kids love to hide things in my desk drawer so I’ve just discovered a friendship bracelet that they made for me.
