With over eleven years of experience in taxation, audit and accounting services, and personal financial planning, she created SpringWell Financial Solutions to cater to the specific needs of individuals and small businesses.

Barbara is at her best helping clients determine and achieve their business and personal financial goals.
Licensed in 2003 as a Certified Pubic Accountant in the state of Georgia, Barbara began her public accounting career with PricewaterhouseCoopers in 1999 as an Associate and participant in the firm's Business Advisory Service and Leadership Program. While at PwC, she worked with clients in the financial services, manufacturing, and technology industries. Ms. Richardson was also an Assistant Vice President in the Financial Reporting & Controls and Capital Markets divisions of a top ten national bank.

Well-respected for her knowledge and customer focus, clients continually look forward to working with Ms. Richardson.
Barbara's professional motto is to educate, equip, and empower others to attain financial freedom. She believes it is financial freedom that is the ultimate American dream, and is within the reach of everyone who desires it.
