Sara Goldhardt |


Director, State & Local Tax Services

She juggles. She balances. She knows her French. Thankfully, she is not a mime.

She’s an accountant. A mom. An OSU grad (with a major in Accounting and minor in French—there’s another juggling act). She’s a lover of music and one heck of a hard worker. She has to be: juggling everything from state tax returns to after-school appointments takes a whole lot of energy. Her favorite quote? “You can sleep when you’re dead.”

Noted, Sara. We’ll be sure to always keep the coffee on for you.
