Kimberly Williams Rising Star
KIMBERLY WILLIAMS, Controller of Managed Contracts at Medical Management Services, has been named the 2018 MSCPA Rising Star and will be recognized during the Business Meeting at the Annual Convention on Saturday, June 23.
Kimberly has set an example for service to the MSCPA that all young CPAs should admire. She is dedicated to the advancement of our profession, the Society, and the Young CPA Network.
Upon passing the CPA exam and receiving her license, Kimberly joined the Society and immediately became active in the Young CPA Network. She took on the very important roles of Vice-President/ Events Chair and YCPA Board member and was then elevated to Young CPA Network President. Under her tenure, the CPA Day of Service became a substantial statewide event allowing CPAs and students from all over the state to get involved in the Society and their communities. With her guidance and dedicated efforts, the Mississippi Food Network recognized the MSCPA Young CPA Network as the Volunteers of the Year in 2016.
The depth of Kimberly’s commitment to the MSCPA also includes serving on the Young CPA Liaison Committee and the Industry Committee which she will chair in the upcoming year, speaking on leadership skills at our annual interns/young professionals luncheon, working our booths at college recruiting events, and speaking at New CPA Ceremonies where she receives high marks from the Mississippi State Board of Public Accountancy. She knows the value of MSCPA membership early in a new CPA’s career and successfully conveys that message. She is currently completing her term as YCPA representative on the Board of Governors.
Kimberly also volunteers at the Mississippi Children’s Museum and supports other charities through 5K participation to further serve her community
