Like the latest “it” bag, Buffie Purselle makes personal finance, tax compliance, and small business management fashionable.
Buffie Purselle is an entrepreneur with over twenty years of expertise in the financial field. As the founder of Buffie, LLC, her success derives from her professional and innate ability to demystify the daunting world of taxes, personal finance, and small business management with skilled, practical, and sometimes sassy guidance with her clients. She is passionate about helping women channel their inner frugal with her financial management firm, “Crawl Before You Ball”. Buffie is a true southern belle and is most recognized as a third-generation tax practitioner from a family of tax pros. Buffie joined the ladies of Bravo’s “Married to Medicine” in their 7th season. She is also recognized as a highly sought-after national tax and personal finance expert seen on HLN, CNN, and CNBC.
Her philanthropic endeavors include being Vice-Chair of Iyai+ (Introducing Youth to American Infrastructure). Iyai+ is a non-profit founded by Dr. Beverly Scott. She is also a National Ambassador for the Lupus Foundation of America, the largest force in the fight to cure lupus. Eight years ago, Buffie became severely ill. In the blink of an eye, Buffie’s bubbly personality that her friends knew and loved seemed to disappear. She was overcome with chronic fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes, mouth sores and hair loss. After a year of testing, she was diagnosed with Lupus. Lupus disproportionately affects minority populations and women. She hopes her work and that of others will help to raise awareness and funds for lupus research. Buffie is happily married to the love of her life, Dr. David Purselle. They have 2 fur babies, Louie, a 4-yearold toy poodle, and Prada, 2-year old Labradoodle.
Se lives by the motto, “If you look for bad in people, you will surely find it,” so, she chooses to look for the good.
