Managing Shareholder Scott Goldsmith of JamisonMoneyFarmer PC (“JMF”) is pleased to announce the promotions of Kristi Moore and Rachel Taylor as shareholders. Kristi and Rachel join twelve other shareholders at one of the state’s top certified public accounting and advisory firms.
“Rachel and Kristi have been extremely valuable to our team, and we are happy that both are part of our leadership group,” Scott Goldsmith stated. “Both are very highly regarded internally as professional staff teachers and mentors and their clients love working with them.”
As is tradition at the firm, both ladies received a floral arrangement from the other female shareholders. The late B.
