Susan Hjort, Owner

Susan majored in accounting at the University of Oregon and made a move after college to California.  There she obtained her California CPA license while working in the San Francisco office of Ernst and Whinney (now Ernst and Young).  After two and a half years as an auditor, Susan worked in the private sector as an Accounting Manager and a financial consultant for another four years before moving back to Oregon. She was at home for 12 years raising her three children before she came back to accounting.

In 2001, Susan renewed her CPA license in Oregon and began working as a tax accountant.  She has experience in individual taxes and business consulting. Her business knowledge has included a variety of industries including real estate, home owners associations, insurance, auto shops, non-profits and churches.  Susan also has expertise in payroll, monthly accounting and Quickbooks training. 

After working with her brother Kevin for four tax seasons Susan joined him as co-owner of the firm. In 2008 she became sole owner of the firm as Kevin started the Portland Payroll Company.  Susan prepares taxes for corporations, partnerships, and individuals, as well as managing the practice.

When she is not at the office, Susan enjoys theatre, travel and staying active at her church where she is the treasurer. Her three children are now in college and working.
