Becky Bartholomae CPA Burdette Smith & Bish

Rebecca Bartholomae is living her favorite quote, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” As a partner at BSB, she has not only made an impact on her clients, but she has also been a faithful community servant. She has volunteered as treasurer of Broyhill Crest Recreation Club, Friendship United Methodist Church, and Skopelos Foundation for the Arts; led Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, served on her HOA board, and lent her talents to many other organizations.

Her educational background in History and German has given Becky a unique perspective in her 30 years as a CPA- a perspective her clients in small business, construction and real estate can appreciate. When she isn’t sharing her expertise in tax planning and compliance; management, or consulting, she can be found cross-stitching, playing tennis, watching Outlander, or cheering for the Washington Capitals.
