Atlanta-native Susan Henderson has been able to combine the skills attained in a degree in education followed by coursework in finance and accounting into a teachable approach to serving clients. She joins Cross Accounting as a branch/tax manager with 14 years of private and public accounting and financial planning experience. Susan, who has a concentration in individual and corporation taxation, enjoys helping business owners improve their profitability and position themselves for a better future — all while keeping a sense of humor. “You have to have a sense of humor because this business can be very serious,” she says.
Susan graduated from the University of Georgia with a BS in Education. She then studied finance and accounting at the University of California, Berkeley. After 10 moves to different parts of the country, including San Francisco and Colorado, Susan settled back in the Atlanta area. Since returning four years ago, she has worked virtually for another local CPA firm. Susan looks forward to the camaraderie found in an office environment and being part of the strong, client-focused team at Cross Accounting.
In her spare time, Susan is an avid genealogist and has volunteered as a researcher for historic locations. She loves to travel and has visited 13 countries as far flung and unique as Korea and Bulgaria. She enjoys spending time with family, as well as woodworking and renovating her house.
