Kristi joined BMSS in 2005 and has over 20 years of experience in nearly every facet of accounting and managing. As a senior manager, she is responsible for preparing and reviewing business, estate, trust and individual income tax returns.

Described as kind, friendly and responsible, Kristi attributes her success at work to having a strong faith and a great support system in her family. She also credits her strong work ethic that her parents instilled in her growing up. Kristi grew to know and understand the accounting profession early on, having a father who was an accountant and working as a bookkeeper for two years in college. During those college years, Kristi wanted to pursue a major that would truly challenge her and found that accounting was the right fit.

Kristi grew up in Cullman, Alabama, and now resides in Hoover, Alabama, where she enjoys a strong sense of community. Kristi is married to her husband, Emilio, and they have one child. When not at the office, Kristi enjoys reading, watching movies, traveling and spending time with family. She is a member of Hunter Street Baptist Church.
