Being raised on the family farm in rural Michigan, Wendy discovered early on that bailing hay in the summer heat, day after day, was about the worst thing she could imagine doing with her life. She planted a seed of a different kind when she worked for her aunt in high school, typing up tax returns

Over 18 years in the industry, I've cultivated a passion for serving small businesses. From my time at bigger firms, I've seen how a one-size-fits-all method can often leave small businesses in the shadows.

Accounting Solutions for Businesses.

The Problem: Business owners aren't getting timely, accurate and actionable data from their financials. Even worse, they're not receiving tax planning advice from their, "tax pro," which is costing them untold amounts of money. This is just plain wrong. We believe you deserve a better small business accounting firm.

Customized tax and accounting services establish a solid foundation to help small business owners flourish. I provide dedicated tax planning and accounting solutions and actually take the time to answer your emails and calls, because I care. This ensures that as a business owner, you know where you stand financially throughout the year, not just at year end. This lets you concentrate on what you do best: growing your business and serving your customers. Because when you succeed, we succeed.

A real CPA isn't just about filing your tax return and then fading into the background. It's about recognizing where you stand today compared to the prior year and actively discussing what we can do to minimize your tax liability. This takes planning, education, and an open line of communication. It is about building a relationship, not just completing a transaction. That is what sets me (and Dark Horse) apart from the rest.

Tax Services for People.

The Problem: taxpayers are not getting the service they deserve from their CPA. Most CPA firms rush through their clients' tax returns, do not properly explain the return, provide no recommendations on how to reduce their taxes and are generally unavailable or unhelpful outside of tax season.

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!
