Sandra J. Vinson, CPA
Sandra Vinson was born and raised in McMinnville, Tennessee. She graduated from Central High School in McMinnville. After High School she completed a B.S. degree in business and accounting at Southern Adventist University in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Upon graduating from college, she lived in Glendale, California for four and a half years and was employed by the Southern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists at the headquarters office in Glendale, California. While there she was initially in charge of payroll for the pastoral staff and the education staff of the conference's churches and parochial school system in the Los Angeles and surrounding counties. Before leaving that employment her work responsibilities had increased to include maintaining the general ledger for the conference. Sandra returned to Tennessee in late 1968 because she missed her family, especially her brothers and sisters.
Upon returning to Tennessee, Sandra worked for three years in McMinnville as Business Manager for the Faulkner Springs Hospital and Nursing Home located in McMinnville. When that facility was closed in 1968 due to the failing health of the owner, Sandra joined the staff of Hall, Davidson & Associates, CPA's in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. After joining this staff, she decided to sit for the CPA exam and earned the CPA certificate in 1978. She has worked there full time for forty-eight years.
Sandra is single and lives here in Murfreesboro, TN. She has one dog, James Bradford, whom she adores. She enjoys cooking and freezing the excess home grown produce that her friends give her from their vegetable gardens. Her favorite hobbies are tending to her flower garden and collecting quality vintage quilts as well as other antiques.
