KATHY AKEN

Senior Tax Manager

About Me:

I have over 30 years of accounting experience and a Masters Degree in Taxation.

 

During my years in public accounting, I provided tax planning and compliance for individuals, partnerships and S corporations.  I served clients in industries such as real estate and professional services.

   

For 20 years I was a consultant that was hired to help clients with developing processes, reconciling difficult transactions, implementing new accounting standards and financial reporting. I loved the variety of the work and seeing the direct results of my assistance to my clients.    

 

My ideal vacation is hanging out in Hawaii reading mystery novels all day. I love fun facts and Trivia and have lots of odd bits of knowledge

Why I love my job:

  • Solving the “problems” in accounting and trying to find the best answer for my clients.

  • Reconciling a messy account and knowing that I have found the correct result.

  • Taking stress of clients that don’t love numbers as much as I do

  • Working as part of this great team at McDevitt & Duffy
