My name is Terry Claiborne. I prepare corporate and individual tax returns at Betty C. Kiger, CPA.

I graduated from Wake Forest University in 1988 with a B.S. in Accountancy and received my CPA license in 1990.

From 1988 to 1998, I worked at Royster, Smith, Shelton and Pulliam, CPAs, performing audits and doing some tax work.

After taking several years off to be with my family, I started working with Betty in 2003.

Public accounting is a great profession if you love numbers and love working with people, and I do.

I have a degree in accounting from Appalachian State and worked for Holly Farms before I married and stayed home to raise my four children. I kept my accounting skills sharp by handling bookkeeping for my husband’s business.

I've been working for Betty C. Kiger, CPA, since June 2020. As a staff accountant, I do bookkeeping, payroll and accounting work for a variety of clients. 

When you visit the office, I am the lady at the front window who is waving and giving you a thumbs-up.

My name is Lola Bicknell, and I've been the chief security officer at Betty C. Kiger, CPA, since October 2017.

I am responsible for greeting our clients at the front door and patrolling our offices and grounds throughout the work day, except of course, when I'm taking power naps. 

I work diligently to train everyone to pet me on command. That's what the barking is all about. Just pet me. 

Occasionally, I take a personal day when it's raining.
