MSA Welcomes Riki and Dustin!

Riki Richards moved from Shelby to Maiden ten years ago and recently graduated with honors from Catawba Valley Community College with an Associates of Science degree focused on Accounting. Riki plans to attend Western Carolina University in the spring studying for a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration focusing on Finance. Her goal is to keep working towards a Masters in Accounting.

In her spare time, you will find Riki hiking, traveling, spending time with her family, and mobile gaming. She looks forward to learning and growing with our amazing firm and is excited about her future at MSA.

Riki was a recent intern for MSA, and we are excited to have her return as a full time employee.

Dustin Smith is a native of Charlotte. He came from a firm in Huntersville as an Enrolled Agent and would like to expand his opportunities here at MSA. Dustin has a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and plans on obtaining his CPA license in the near future.

His 3 year old daughter keeps him busy at home, but when he has some extra time, you will find Dustin playing golf, basketball or watching a sporting event. He is a true believer that sports teach us great values in life which include dedication, hard work, being a team player and most importantly, finding a goal to shoot for and the satisfaction of reaching it.
