Laura Pierce

Senior Audit Manager, CPA

Laura has been working in public accounting for over 17 years.  She is a 1989 graduate of the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia.  She began her accounting career working for one of the original Big Eight firms.  After taking a break to stay home with her then young children, Laura returned to a small public accounting firm which has just recently become part of JHM.  While she has worked in a variety of industries over the years, she has spent most time in the manufacturing industry or with non-profit entities.

Laura enjoys a continued relationship with Girls' Preparatory School teachers and friends through volunteer work therein.  She lives with her husband, Todd, on Signal Mountain.
