M-AshleyRutledge-100814Ashley J. Rutledge, CPA – Owner

I decided to start Rutledge CPA , PLLC after ten years in the accounting and finance industries.  My mission is to offer simple, honest, and personable accounting and tax services.  I am drawn to the small business and entrepreneurial spirit of this area, while also enjoying working with individuals on financial, tax, and strategic planning needs.  I offer accounting, payroll, tax, and consulting services for both businesses and individuals.

I am a licensed CPA in the state of North Carolina (#39971) and have over ten years of experience in various fields of accounting including corporate, public, private, and government as well as in the field of banking and finance.  I earned my Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Indiana Wesleyan University.  I currently serve as auditor of my church and treasurer of my daughter’s girl scout troop.

I live in Durham with my husband and our two daughters.  I am a native North Carolinian having grown up in the western mountain region.  I have called Durham my home since we moved here in 2010.  My favorite hobbies, which are a throwbacks to my Art School days, include drawing, painting, and crocheting.  I also enjoy collecting vintage glassware.
