Micah Jackson
Tax Associate

Personal Formation and Forte

Micah graduated Cum Laude from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Finance. He was drawn to personal financial planning and analytics upon his first exposure to them in school. This led to a career stretch in banking and investments where he focused on developing comprehensive financial plans for clients. It was there that he determined to progress toward the specializations of accounting and taxation. Micah integrates all his natural talents, education and professional experience in serving clients with a well-rounded perspective.

Micah is a hard-working, self-motivated individual who was influenced by his parents who exercised a weekly discipline of balancing the family finances and openly discussing them. The accountability, hard work, and motivation he grew up with became his own. He fully understands the power of responsible financial management and the “good life” that such responsibility affords. He welcomes technical challenges and has earned a reputation for being willing to take on complex, intensive work with a great attitude and capability.
