Our Top Goals for Your Law Firm

About Chrystal Shadburn

Chrystal Shadburn was born and raised in Macon, GA, and comes from a family of motivated entrepreneurs known for their ethics and hard work. Her grandfather, Art Shadburn, played a significant role in shaping her values and career choices. He instilled in her the importance of continuous learning, ethical conduct, and precision in all endeavors.

Chrystal began her working life in her grandfather’s upholstery shop at the age of nine. Despite initially planning to follow the family trade, a disabling accident at fifteen led her to discover her true passion for accounting, upon her mother’s recommendation.

Graduating from Middle Georgia Technical College in 2010, Chrystal has been working in accounting since then. She began specializing in legal bookkeeping in 2013, and by 2021, she established Shadburn Bookkeeping. Her dedication to her craft and commitment to her clients have been the driving forces behind her success.
