Ashley Cowell Office Manager and Bookkeeper
With a background in finances and customer relations for over 11 years, Ashley operates efficiently as the central nervous system of the firm, overseeing every aspect of office technology in the office. She smoothly tackles problems with computers and issues with financial operations with equal ease, and does bookkeeping for some of the firm's clients.
Client trust is important to Ashley, and she serves as the first step in creating that trust by recognizing what financial needs each client brings, and how those needs can be met by the firm.
