about susan

Susan joined Boyum Barenscheer in 2014 through an acquisition and has become a leader in the firm’s Tax Department. Her emphasis lies in the planning and preparation of individual and estate & trust returns.  With over 30 years of experience in the profession, Susan’s calm demeanor is key in the client service that she enjoys so much.  She especially likes helping clients feel less stress as they deal with their taxes.

Susan is active with the staffing of the Tax Department and the subsequent training of new hires as well as the firm’s Tax Intern program. She loves training and working with the intern group as she feels she may be working with the next partners of the firm!


Out of the office, Susan is a busy family woman with six children and several animals. She keeps everyone in line with the help of her husband Tim, a retired US Navy captain.  They live in Rosemount.  When relaxing, Susan enjoys bonfires, reading and long walks.

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow".
