Libby Edwards-Allbaugh

The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce will present the Chamber 2020 Q Businesswoman Award to Libby Edwards-Allbaugh of The Tax Ladies, Inc. The presentation will be made during the 13th Annual Chamber Quadruplicity Conference, March 13th at UVA Darden School of Business.

The Chamber Q Award honors the accomplishments and contributions of women in the Chamber, honoring the recipient as a leading Chamber and area businesswoman. The Chamber Q Award was designed to recognize the unique strengths, capabilities, and contributions of women in our local business community.

Edwards-Allbaugh is the founder, owner and partner of The Tax Ladies, Inc., a successful minority and woman-owned tax service business. The success of her business is built upon providing accurate, personal service with integrity.

An active community member, Edwards-Allbaugh is a board member with Charlottesville Area Community Foundation, Center for Nonprofit Excellence, Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council, and the National Coalition of 100 Black Women of the Charlottesville Metropolitan Area, to name a few. She is also actively involved with the Chamber’s Business Women’s Round Table and Minority Business Alliance.

Edwards-Allbaugh was selected as the 2020 Q Businesswoman Award recipient because of her demonstrated success, leadership, community service, Chamber service and mentorship for women. Through her leadership, she has built partnerships between The Tax Ladies, local organizations and the community.

“Libby is the consummate business woman and successful by anyone’s standards. However, she is also a born leader with a huge heart for service,” said Khalilah Jones, who nominated Edwards-Allbaugh for the award. “She is not simply out for own success. As Libby achieves goals, she reaches back and pulls up the women behind her.”

“Libby has done exceptional work in the business community and even more so in the marginalized communities of Charlottesville through her mentorship, board service, program development and community service,” Jones said. “Her contributions over the years have been substantial.”
