With two master’s degrees in Accounting and Business Administration, CPA and Acuity Controller Heather Sutton brings over 15 years of experience to the table and specializes in industries like SaaS, ASC606, services, retail, manufacturing, tax, and financial analysis. While her breadth of experience is impressive, there’s one thing that Heather is most proud of: earning her CPA license while working a full-time job!
Heather undoubtedly works hard—but she knows how to have some fun, too. "I love doing anything that is outdoors," she shared. "During the summer, I’m in the water—either at the pool, lake, ocean, or kayaking on the river. I also love hunting and fishing and even own 70 acres of hunting property!"
At Acuity, Heather enjoys the ability to be autonomous and to grow and learn every day. Her mantra while working? A quote from John Wooden: "Mistakes come from doing, but so does success."

When you work with businesses, the mantra that “there’s no such thing as a bad question” is one of the best ones to have.

That’s where her skills at time management, organization, and big picture thinking have helped small businesses manage their finances, and where she also gained extensive tax, treasury, and human resource-related experience. When not at work, Meredith is a big UGA football fan, and you can always find her spending time outdoors with her family, planning trips, and getting pumped about Atlanta United’s seriously impressive winning streak.
