Meet New FTSV Director: Sarah Beelaard

First Tee – Silicon Valley recently elected Sarah Beelaard to our Board of Directors.

Sarah has almost 18 years of work experience at PwC and became a Trust Partner in July 2018.  She spent 16 years in public accounting where she assisted public companies and established multinational corporations (including Fortune 100) with their U.S. GAAP, SOX 404 and SEC filing requirements. She has a unique combination of audit (assurance) and non-audit (advisory, internal audit) experience. 

Sarah serves as PwC’s recruiting partner at her alma mater San Jose State University through the Braven program to increase diversity and fill positions in the San Jose office. She mentors underrepresented young people—first-generation college students to help enable them to use their college education to secure a job with future opportunities and potential.  

Sarah grew up in Morgan Hill then moved to South San Jose near Los Lagos and Rancho del Pueblo where she learned to play golf with the help of her husband. She is now raising her 3 kids (daughter age 10 and twin boy/girl age 8) back in Morgan Hill.  She recently joined CordeValle and is introducing golf to her kids. Sarah has personally always been involved in sports and knows what it can do to help the development of kids.

As a mother of a child with type 1 Diabetes, Sarah also fundraises and has served as a chair for the walk committee for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation since 2005.
