Carrie Poores

Carrie R. Poores, CPA PartnerA graduate of Sinclair Community College, Carrie received her CPA designation in 1993 and joined our firm in 1995. Her 27+ years’ experience in public accounting are evident in the ease with which she moves between tax planning for a $5M business to preparing financial statements for a start-up restaurant.

Carrie is also an Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor. She assesses the financial needs of the client, then conducts the installation, setup and implementation of QuickBooks to streamline the accounting side of the business thus granting the client more time to concentrate on other areas.

Long hours never diminish the positive attitude Carrie brings to her work. Whether meeting around a mahogany table in a corporate high-rise or over a baby’s playpen in a cramped home office, she approaches each client with a smile and attacks their financial matters with patience and persistence, always seeking the ideal solution to their situation.

Carrie says that her part-time jobs in high school and college taught her the value of hard work and good customer service.

Carrie lives in Clayton with her husband John. Now that their two sons are grown and on their own, she likes to stay busy on the weekends working in her flower gardens and riding their motorcycles.
