Patrick & Raines CPAs, with offices in St. Nicholas and Ponte Vedra, recently welcomed two staff accountants to its team: Jaime Bardee and Barbara Bellamy, CPA.
Bardee is from St. Louis , with an MBA from the University of Florida , and is currently in the Master of Accountancy program at University of North Florida , with an expected graduation date of December. Along with her extensive education, Bardee also holds designations as a certified QuickBooks Pro advisor and a Xero advisor.
Prior to her career as an accountant, Bardee served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years.
“Joining such a leading firm is a great career opportunity,” Bardee says. “I look forward to making a difference for our clients.”
Barbara Bellamy, formerly from Houston , earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting from Texas A&M and became a CPA in 2000. She was around accounting long before college as her mother was the office manager at a CPA firm, where she later interned for two tax seasons.
“We’re excited to bring on such seasoned professionals to our accounting team,” says founding partner Mark Patrick. “As the quality of our client base grows, we’re able to attract accountants with accomplished backgrounds.
