It's important to know your business partners. The Principal of Blackberry Accounting and Consulting is Kathryn J Bishop, CPA. She grew up in North Carolina following her dad around building job sites and was often put to work after-school and on weekends.
It was armed with this appreciation of hard work that enabled her to work her way through earning a degree in math from UNC-CH, a master’s degree in accounting from App State, and scoring among the top 10% who pass the CPA exam on the first attempt.
After graduation, Kathryn spent the next 20 years working for one of the 4 largest CPA firms in the world and in various other finance capacities primarily in the utilities sector. Over her career she learned that accurate and timely financial information is important, but the real story of a business is in interpreting that information to make more calculated decisions.
She is now applying the analytical skills of a mathematician with the business acumen of a CPA to her personal passion; seeing hard working small construction businesses owners succeed.
