“Provide the best service possible and treat others with patience and respect.”
Patsy joined Barfield, Murphy, Shank & Smith in 2004. As an administrative professional to John Shank, Steve Smith, and Karen Poist, her primary responsibilities involve tax-related work, but the scope of her duties range from legal administrative work, to assisting with correspondence and preparation of meetings and lunches, as well as answering incoming calls for the firm. Patsy’s responsibilities are, in short, to provide service to any of the CPAs and clients as needed.
Patsy is described as dependable and always willing to help. She attributes her success to the morals and values instilled in her by her parents. Her favorite quote is “Success is getting what you want…Happiness is wanting what you get.”
Patsy grew up in Birmingham and now resides in Pelham with her husband and three dogs. They have three children, two girls and a boy, and three grandsons. When she isn’t at the office, Patsy enjoys spending time with her family and grandchildren as well as reading.
