Marlene Martinez

  • Senior Accountant
  • Birmingham

Marlene joined the Birmingham team in 2020 as a staff accountant. Before joining BMSS, she worked at a local firm assisting with audits, reviews, compilations and client write-ups and even assisted with HUD audits. Her focus is in both assurance and tax services working in various industries including manufacturing and distribution, film and entertainment, and nonprofits.

When she was younger, Marlene helped her father, who owns a construction company, with his bookkeeping work, estimating, invoicing and bidding. This inspired her to go into accounting. When she took her first class, it all just clicked into place. Described as reliable, Marlene’s personal philosophy is “Always do more than is required of you.”

When Marlene is not at work, she loves to spend time with her friends and family. She and her high school sweetheart were married in 2018. They recently purchased their first house and adopted a rescue cat named Athena.
