Tricia Story was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas, lived in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and graduated from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas. While her husband Wayne served in the Air Force, she resided with him in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Upon Wayne’s departure from the Air Force, they determined that Arkansas was the place their hearts called home, and she returned to the University of Arkansas for graduate hours in accounting.
After a year of graduate school in accounting, Tricia entered the work force where she was the payroll accountant for Washington Regional Hospital, and then became the accountant for Jaeger + Haines, an Insurance Brokerage Firm in Fayetteville. After home schooling her three children for 18 years, Tricia returned to the field of accounting with the Story Law Firm, PLLC.
