Special to Atmore News

Maribeth West has joined the staff of Davis, Bell & Amerson, LLC, accounting and tax service firm in Atmore.
Maribeth is the daughter of Omer and Annette (Chunn) West of Uriah, and a J.U. Blacksher High School alumna.
Maribeth recently earned her Master of Accountancy from Troy University, which is also where she graduated with honors with her bachelor’s degree in accounting during the fall of 2018. In fact, Dr. Alan Bell was her professor in a few courses. Following graduation, she returned to her hometown of Uriah. She has passed all four sections of the CPA exam and will receive her CPA certification once she completes the experience requirement this year. She has a year of past accounting experience from in Montgomery.
Maribeth’s hobbies include running a photography business, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Family is very important to her. Without their constant support, she says she would not have made it this far.
“My aunt first sparked my interest in accounting when I was around the age of 12,” she said. “I spent the day in her office watching her work and thinking it seemed so cool. After taking my first accounting class at Troy, I knew that this was the career for me. I look forward to continuing to serve the clients of Davis, Bell and Amerson alongside my amazing coworkers.”
