Our Founder – Sarah Elliott, PCC, CPA

Sarah Elliott, Founder of Ellivate AllianceSarah’s entrepreneurial journey began before she even knew it was happening. The seeds were planted when she thought she had finally “made it” as a successful partner at a CPA firm in 2013. But when she finally achieved what she had set out to do thirteen years earlier, she felt something was missing.

In the summer of 2014, she took a leap of faith and walked away from a great job…while she was 5 months pregnant.

It seemed like a crazy decision, especially for someone who used to say she could never walk away from the security of a salaried job. But she knew it was the only choice…there was something else she needed to do.

Today, Sarah is an executive leadership coach and the co-founder of Intend2Lead, a leadership development firm that coaches leaders to access the Dimension of Possible through leadership coaching, group learning and consulting with organizations to create coaching cultures. She is recognized by AICPA and CPA Practice Advisor as one of the Most Powerful Women in Accounting.

Sarah is at her best when she dreams big, takes risks, gives of herself and collaborates with others who share her values. She loves connecting people, ideas, resources and opportunities in powerful new ways.

Sarah has always enjoyed connecting with other women and supporting their growth, whether it’s through her work or volunteerism in her profession and community. She’s passionate about supporting other women because she knows that each and every woman has unlimited potential for greatness when she simply awakens to her own creative powers. When a woman uncovers more of her greatness, she is inspired to help others. Not only will she contribute more to her family, friends, organization and community…she will change the world.
