GiGi has been with Russell Thompson Butler & Houston for over 15 years and became partner in 2005. She serves as one of the Firm’s experts in Construction and Real Estate accounting. GiGi is a member of CICPAC, a national association of CPAs recognized in their respective markets for providing high-quality financial and consulting services to the construction industry. Beyond CICPAC, GiGi is also a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Alabama Society of Certified Public Accountants as well as the Mobile Chapter of Certified Public Accounts. Prior to joining RTBH, GiGi worked as a corporate staff accountant for a publicly traded company in Birmingham, Alabama.

GiGi knew from an early age that business and accounting were for her. Due to her father’s untimely and premature death, she witnessed firsthand her mother’s struggle with financial matters. She promised herself then that she would pursue a career in which she could support herself as well as help others with their financial affairs.

She is a 1997 graduate of Birmingham Southern College where she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting. She is a member of numerous civic organizations, including the Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce, and works both in the Mobile and Fairhope offices of RTBH. GiGi, daughter Mae and husband Houston are avid pet lovers. She has been quoted as saying, “we don’t know how many pets we actually have – too many to count.”

When asked, “What is the biggest misconception about accounting?”, GiGi responds, “everyone thinks that accounting is about math. It has nothing to do with math; it is about problem solving. Every client and situation is like a puzzle and it is our job to find the missing piece.”
