About the Founders

Kimberly Smith

Kimberly Smith, CPA
has been a CPA for 15 years and an expat for 10. Kimberly received her undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia and later completed her Masters in Taxation. Kimberly honed her skills in Big 4 public accounting but always looked to owning her own firm. She and her husband started their own brick and mortar CPA practice in Atlanta. They were enjoying the work and meeting new clients while the business grew. Then they were hit by the travel bug. An opportunity to move overseas arose, and they sold the business to pack up and move to London. Kimberly began business again on her own by serving the expat community in the UK and expanding to Europe, Asia and Australia. Vagabond Tax is the result of that expansion. When she is not working, Kimberly enjoys traveling and spending time with her family.
