Our Stories

Laura Taber, CPA
Manager

My time at Machen McChesney has been incredibly fulfilling. I began working with the firm as an intern, and throughout my time at Machen McChesney, I have been surrounded by outstanding teachers and mentors who have helped me develop the skill set I have today. Further, the firm’s encouragement of community involvement allows for not only professional growth, but personal as well.


The professionalism of our staff is amazing. As a team, members at Machen McChesney are not afraid to work outside the box and go the extra mile to Return Value both inside and out of the office.

I was fortunate that during my senior year at Auburn University I had Don Machen as my income tax instructor.  From that relationship I was later able to intern with the firm and after being away from Auburn for eight years come back to the firm.  We have had many great opportunities that have arisen through the years because of the foundation that was built in the  early years.  I have been fortunate to have been associated with great partners and staff.  Together we have created a friendly work environment with the flexibility to afford all of us a great work-life balance.
