Margo Talley

Senior Tax Manager

Margo got started in accounting because a high school counselor encouraged her to look at accounting instead of becoming a high school teacher - teaching calculus and trigonometry.  In her junior year in high school, Margo worked as an intern and fell in love with the profession. 

Prior to joining Gollob Morgan Peddy, Margo spent the majority of her career in Longview, working with regional accounting firms before starting her practice in late the 1980s.  She later merged that practice with another CPA firm, serving as Vice President, before deciding to make a change.

In 2016, Margo relocated to Tyler to join Gollob Morgan Peddy.  The opportunity to work again with a larger firm and mentor young accountants was too enticing to refuse. Areas of focus in practice—after practicing for over three decades, pretty much anything.  Mostly concentrate now on business entities and non-profits.

Margo states: "Accounting is so much more than just crunching the numbers. You also have to be a people person.  I have enjoyed the opportunities to work with and really get to know so many different people over the decades, many of these client relationships have become close friends." 

Margo attended Texas Tech University, pursuing a degree in BBA - Accounting, while prior to Texas Tech she attended East Texas State University (before it was part of A&M).  She has one son that is a firefighter/paramedic and four grandsons.

In her free time, Margo enjoys cheering for her Texas Tech Red Raiders, spending time with her grandkids, exploring new places, and meeting new people.
