Carol Merritt

Front Office Coordinator

With more than 20 years of administrative experience, Carol Merritt has been an invaluable member of Edwards & Associates since joining us in August 2009. As our Front Office Coordinator, Carol ensures we run a smooth operation, from managing billing, collections, statements, and e-file tax returns to providing a friendly and professional atmosphere for our clients and staff. Before joining Edwards & Associates, Carol honed her skills as an administrative assistant at an advertising agency and another CPA firm. 

Originally from Irving, Texas, Carol now calls McKinney home. She is an active member of her church and enjoys spending her free time watching sports, working out at the gym, and creating memories with her husband and son. 

Fun Facts:

  • Carol’s favorite color is black, but here’s the dilemma—what do you do when your blacks don’t match? 
  • Her favorite number is 10, which makes sense because she’s always aiming for perfection! 
  • Carol’s favorite planet is Jupiter. Did you know that if Jupiter were a hollow shell, 1,000 Earths could fit inside?
  • While cookies and cream ice cream is her ultimate flavor, cheesecake is her favorite dessert. So, what happens when she encounters cookies and cream cheesecake? Pure, unadulterated bliss—or perhaps a minor existential crisis!
  • Carol would want Reese Witherspoon to portray her in her biopic. But which Reese? Legally Blonde Reese? Sweet Home Alabama Reese? Sing Reese? The possibilities are endless!
