Sara Fizer describes herself as a "do what needs to be done" kind of person.
As Villing & Company's accounting manager, that sort of can-do spirit is a great quality to possess.
We won't call it a checkered career, but Sara's work/life experiences are likely much more diverse than your typical accounting professional. She's pruned Christmas trees, designed and produced vinyl graphics for van conversions, and worked in catering, pool maintenance and landscaping. All this after her years as a fine arts major at Indiana University - South Bend.
But it was her accounting skills that first introduced her to the Villing & Company team, having previously worked with the agency as part of a payroll processing and bookkeeping services provider. It was there her colleagues noted her "can-do, whatever it takes" attitude by referring to her as McGyver. And it is strangely appropriate that her last name, Fizer, autocorrects to "Fixer."
Sara's eclectic interests go beyond her professional background. Married for nearly 10 years, she and her husband Ron, enjoy boating, kayaking, camping and hiking - just about anything one can do outdoors. They could also be described as Dave Matthews Band groupies having attended one of his concerts every year - an accomplishment Sara claims with pride. She is equally proud to note that her family includes a daughter, two dogs and two cats. The TV McGyver has nothing on Sara Fizer, AKA "the fixer."
