Meredith Barfield developed a passion for business at a young age, as her father was an owner of several family-owned businesses. That is what motivated her to get a Master's degree in Accounting and become a licensed CPA. Aside from her education, Meredith became deeply interested in everything fashion & beauty related after becoming obsessed with the movie release of Legally Blonde in 2001 (age 12). Being born & raised in a very small town about 30 minutes out of Savannah, GA, she was intrigued by the glitz and glamour that she would read about in magazines and pop culture news she would see on E! Television.
Meredith & her husband Brandon moved to Savannah in 2013 and are obsessed with the culture, restaurants & scenery that Historic Downtown Savannah has to offer. After working for a few years in public accounting, Meredith decided to work full-time with her husband in his Construction Business. She is the CFO and is in charge of the financial & administrative functions of the company.
Meredith created Tongue In Cheek Chic in 2016 as a creative outlet for herself, where she shares her passions for personal style, fashion & beauty. She also hopes to inspire other women in business & be a resource for those wishing to create the best lives for themselves. She is a firm believer that all women should feel confident, empowered, and know that they can achieve anything!
