A house divided, while hackneyed, accurately describes Lauren and Chris Chapman's household. The two share much in common; their daughters, their vocation (both CPAs), and their home state of Texas. It's a specific allegiance within that state, however, that divides them. You see, Lauren is an Aggie and Chris is a Longhorn. As you might suspect, Chris is the odd man out living in College Station. He might also be the odd man out for other reasons, but that's a different story.
Lauren was born and raised in Bryan-College Station and earned her accounting degree from (surprise, surprise) Texas A&M. She is a Texas-licensed CPA who has worked for the Big 4, a regional CPA firm (where she met Chris) and in private industry. Additionally, she served on the Board of Directors for TXCPA Brazos Valley as both the Secretary and Executive Director.
Outside of running the show for Chris Chapman, you'll find Lauren spending quality time with her daughters, Lizzy and Caroline, as well as both her and Chris' families, watching the aforementioned Aggies football, or enjoying time on the family ranch.
Suzi Drennen is the most knowledgeable, conscientious, and responsive CPA I have ever known—which is why I’ve stayed with her for more than 10 years. She is honest, has always gotten back to me quickly even at the height of tax season, and has saved me thousands of dollars over the years. The icing on the cake is that Suzi’s easy to work with and on top of that, a great person! She and her firm are tops!
