As a mom to two small children, Sara brings balance (pun intended) to her life with her yoga practice.

Sara Blackmore joined ATKG in June of 2015. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, with a Finance concentration, from The University of Maine. Sara went on to receive a Master of Accountancy degree from The University of Texas at San Antonio. She brings a significant amount of experience to the firm in real estate, oil & gas, not-for-profits, professional services, and wealth management. In July 2019, Sara took a brief hiatus from professional life to travel the country with her family in their renovated RV. After five months on the road and a detour as Controller for a local family office, she found her way home to ATKG. After 12 years of calling San Antonio home, Sara now serves clients from her new home in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As a licensed CPA, Sara is a member of the AICPA, the TSCPA, and the SACPA.

A native of New England, Sara feels most at home in the mountains and will find an excuse to put maple syrup in just about anything she cooks. When she is not having fun solving complex tax issues, you can find her on her yoga mat, chasing after her son and daughter at the park, road-tripping, or daydreaming of being a farmer.
