Leslie Wright

CPA, Principal, Tax Practice

One of the reasons I joined Smith + Howard is because of their commitment to excellence. During the interview process, more than one person discussed the idea of 'smarter, better, every day' and I really wanted to join a team that looked for consistent improvement even when something was working well.
