    Georgia Welch is our Staff Accountant and has lived in Granbury since 2009. She is married and has four school-aged children. She graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree in May 2016 and is currently working on her Master of Accounting degree at Tarleton State University.  She is slated to complete that program December 2017 and then will sit for the CPA exam in 2018.  Before coming to work at KDA, Georgia interned for the City of Granbury in the finance department and has over 15 years combined experience in non-public accounting across several industries.

One of Georgia’s strengths is her commitment to developing one-on-one relationships with our clients, helping them navigate the processes necessary to solve their individual accounting problems.  She sees her work in public accounting, working with small businesses, as a deep calling.   She feels her role is to partner with clients, using her skills to help business owners be successful.  Georgia understands very well people don’t go into business to worry about accounting processes and tax rules and wants to help business owners focus on their vision for success.  Not payroll taxes, depreciation and reconciliations:  the nuts and bolts of operations.  When these compulsory items are handled expertly, the mind of a business owner is free to dream and be inspired.

Some of Georgia’s experiences for our clients have included: comprehensive bookkeeping, payroll processing, federal payroll tax reporting, TWC reporting, sales tax reporting, bank reconciliations, and financial statement preparation and review.  She also works preparing taxes during our busy season and is tireless in her efforts to exceed client expectations.

Georgia loves Cajun food (especially crawfish) and when she’s not working (which she also loves!) or going to school, she likes to spend time at the beach, camping or just being outside with friends and family; playing games (even golf) and taking road trips.

 

Brittney Owens is our Administrative Assistant.  She started life in Granbury and graduated from Granbury ISD in 2002, but has spent time in the Galveston area and other interesting places.  Lucky for us, Granbury always draws her back!

At KDA, Brittney is a crucial member of our team.  She keeps the office organized and running well and is instrumental in getting our clients the answers they need.  It is Brittney and her warm and friendly nature that welcomes you to our office and greets you on the telephone.  In addition to the excellent management of our office, Brittney also assists with special projects and other bookkeeping items.

She has 2 active girls and enjoys fitness, reading, sewing and silly videos.  She also has a flair for decorating and a devoted love of gummy bears.

 

Mary Smith joined KDA in 2010. She has been married for 47 years and has three daughters and seven grandchildren. She and her husband, Ed, love to cruise and travel in their RV. She also likes to read and play golf when she’s not with her girls and grandkids.

Mary began doing tax preparation in 1971, completing over 100 hours of accounting and tax courses. She passed the enrolled agent exam and received her enrollment certificate in 1999. She has a total of 34 years of tax preparation experience. She excels in trust and estate taxation, as well as addressing the unique needs of the mature and retired client.
