“The Golden Rule: Treat others as you would want to be treated.”

Hollie started at Barfield, Murphy, Shank, & Smith in 1998 and rejoined the firm in 2012 after being away for nearly six years. As a bookkeeping manager, she is responsible for the bookkeeping practices and procedures to guarantee timely and accurate records and reports. In particular, Hollie specializes in performing outsourced controller and accounting work for a variety of businesses and organizations, from small non-profits to large manufacturing corporations.  She has experience working within clients’ networks as well as numerous versions of accounting software.

With over 18 years of professional experience, Hollie has been instrumental in helping the firm’s clients achieve financial success. In one instance, she successfully improved the inventory cycle count process and streamlined the month-end closing process for a large manufacturing company. A reflection of her work ethic, Hollie’s favorite quote is by Maya Angelou: “Do the best you can until you know better.  Then when you know better, do better.”

Hollie lives in Trussville, Alabama with her husband, Steven, and three children. She is the coach for her daughter’s cheerleading squad and enjoys driving her children all around town to various activities. Hollie also likes to play tennis and read.
