Connected by a common client, Elizabeth Ruble and TJ Leadbetter founded the firm in 1994 with a shared vision for serving businesses.
Licensed in 1981, Elizabeth brought a wealth of public accounting experience.
Combined with TJ’s tenure in the State Comptroller’s Office and Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, the team was well-positioned to assist business with all their tax filings.
In 1996, Elizabeth and TJ took a chance and hired a young accounting student to work in their growing CPA firm.
“I learned the basics of business accounting, payroll, and tax returns – forming the foundation of my career. I’ve always been grateful for their wisdom and encouragement and we’ve stayed connected all these years,” says Kendra.
In 2022, Kendra returned to public accounting after being in corporate leadership for 15 years. She particularly enjoying getting back into tax projects and helping businesses take advantage of systems and technology.
