A Little About Me

Although I was raised in Clarksville, TN, I have been living, studying, and working in Nashville for the past 16 years. (My family still resides in Clarksville so you may see me in the Madison Street location from time to time!) Growing up, I always loved learning new things, following the rules, and imagining what the future would look like. When I got my first job as a teenager, I quickly realized just how important it is to stick to a budget and pay your taxes. I feel quite grateful I never lost sight of these principles and find myself 10 years into a career as a Certified Public Accountant – a profession where my appreciation for financial planning and pristine paperwork continues to grow stronger every day.

In 2021, I began my favorite role to date – an auntie! The addition of my new baby niece to the family sparked conversations about updating wills, powers of attorney, and healthcare directives. Although these conversations were a bit emotional and uncomfortable, I know my family members felt relief knowing a plan was in place for their loved ones. The thought of helping other families secure their legacies and safeguard their hard-earned wealth resonates deeply with me. I also intend to volunteer with IRS’s VITA/TCE program to assist the elderly and low-income individuals with file their federal tax returns.
Outside of the office, I enjoy cooking, writing, and playing city-building games. I also come from a family of master gardeners – in the summertime you may catch me alongside my twin sister selling homegrown blueberries at the Clarksville Downtown Market. I also love being outside as much as I can, typically biking, jogging, and birdwatching on the Nashville greenways. I live in East Nashville with my partner David and our fluffy tabby cat Minnie.

Journey to the Law

After earning my BBA from Belmont University, I started my career in banking at Tennessee Bank and Trust (now Fourth Capital) – a boutique bank focusing on the Middle Tennessee community. I worked as a teller supervisor for several years but wanted a more challenging long-term career. Wanting to gain an even stronger skillset, I set my sights on further education.

In 2015, I graduated from Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management with my Masters of Accountancy degree. Immediately upon completing my graduate studies, I passed the CPA exam and began my accounting career as an auditor at Ernst and Young (now EY). While at the Big 4 firm, I gained experience auditing financial statements for multiple Fortune 500 companies in the Nashville area across various industries from healthcare to retail to oil and gas. The Big 4 taught me resilience, precision, and the art of juggling multiple clients at once without dropping a single bean. More recently, I have worked at Mars Petcare and Schneider Electric in financial analysis and senior accounting roles. Although I learned a lot at these large, international organizations, I’m excited to work once again at a small firm and get to know clients on a more personal level.

    Hear From Our Clients

    Marshall P

    Mr Crow and his staff are amazing! Especially the person assigned to my account, so a special thank you to Callie! Callie answered all of my questions and set expectations during a very confusing time in my life. Mr Crow and his team worked diligently with my specific situation and were very results driven. I would recommend Crow Estate Planning and Probate to anyone looking for an estate or probate attorney.

    Benny H

    Today my wife and I completed (at Crow Estate Planning and Probate) our Will, Living Will, Power of Attorney for Finance and Medical. As a Tennessee CPA for over 20 years (now retired), I’d like to leave this review so that others may benefit. Our experience rating with with Crow Estate Planning and Probate is EXCELLENT. Our legal team was Kyle Shannon, Callie and Julia. This team was competent, courteous, and professional. They made a potentially complex experience “easy” despite multiple minor trusts involved. The charge for professional services rendered was very reasonable. My wife (Denise) and I would like to thank Kyle and his team (Callie and Julia) for a great experience that exceeded our expectations. I will return for legal needs and I will refer family and others to Kyle, Callie and Julia.
