Prior to joining BMSS, she completed an internship in the internal audit department of Books-A-Million, Inc. where she performed various operational audits.

Described as bubbly and caring, Marlah went into the accounting practice to utilize the natural skills she was equipped with in order to grow and succeed while being able to help others. She also enjoys the challenges and opportunities that accounting presents. Kindness, humility, gentleness and patience are the traits that she strives to instill in all aspects of her personal and work life.

After growing up in Fairview, Alabama, Marlah now lives in Birmingham with her pet Yorkie, Yogi Bear. She loves the sense of community and all of the kind people that she’s met. In her spare time, Marlah loves to be outdoors, attend sporting events, spend time with friends and family and go running. A little known fact about Marlah is that she loves corny jokes and all things “punny.”
