“Always give your all.”
Meredith joined the Barfield, Murphy, Shank & Smith team in 2010 and currently serves as a senior accountant. She works primarily with privately held businesses and financial institutions. While she performs both tax and audit work, the bulk of Meredith’s experience is in providing audit services, specifically employee benefit plans.
Prior to joining the team, Meredith worked for two years as a margins analyst with a financial firm. She also had the opportunity to work as a financial representative in London, England for two years. She attributes much of her success to her dependability and hard work ethic. Meredith was inspired to pursue a career in accounting after a previous employer told her she had the skills to be a successful accountant.
Meredith is originally from Livingston, Alabama. She now resides in Birmingham with her husband, Stephen. They welcomed a baby girl, Scarlett Rose, to their family in May 2015. In her free time, Meredith enjoys staying active, reading and traveling.
