Faye Sklar started her career in public accounting with an international accounting firm, later becoming the controller for Marist School in Atlanta. After taking some years off to raise her family, Faye ran into a long-time friend, Grady Allen, at a continuing professional education course. Grady asked if she were ready to get back into the public accounting world, as his firm needed another experienced accountant. Faye joined BJM in 2006.
In addition to recognizing her long-time tax and accounting experience, clients describe Faye as very thorough, patient and respectful as she gathers the information required to complete their tax returns. “I’m a good detective,” Faye commented. “I can look at my clients’ documents and quickly figure out what is missing. I try to ask via a single email all the needed questions regarding missing information and clarifications, and I am good at straightening out bookkeeping errors.”
When not working, Faye enjoys spending time with her family and watching college football, although UGA / GA Tech football weekends are tough with one daughter having graduated from each school. Faye also teaches an ESL (English as a Second Language) class for international students. She has traveled extensively overseas.
