Susan Day

Principal & Tax Service Line Leader
WaKeeney, KS

How I help . . .

I work to demystify the complex world of tax to help clients reach their goals. My favorite part of working with clients is building personal relationships with them, listening to their needs and building solutions together.

I was inspired to pursue a career in accounting after working as a bookkeeper for a local business in high school. My experience in the accounting profession has provided me with a wide array of opportunities, the chance to expand my knowledge through continual learning and the ability to have a meaningful impact.

“I’m a life-long learner and am always curious. I’m also a wife to a busy entrepreneur and a mother to three great kids. I’m a sports lover, volunteer and self-proclaimed tax nerd.”
