Senior Accountant

Senior Accountant Mackenna R. Parks, EA, joined the Laciak>cpa team in 2023. A resident of Lowell, Mackenna attended Purdue University Northwest, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in 2020.

Even though her initial aspirations were to be a meteorologist one day (and she still is fascinated by the weather!), her natural mathematical abilities led her down the path to accounting.

“I have always been good at mathematics; it was my favorite subject in school, which led me to the direction of wanting to study accounting in college,” says Mackenna. “I soon learned that accounting isn’t all math though; it’s puzzles, organization, and attention to detail, which made me love it even more!”

Mackenna comes to Laciak>cpa with 4 years of public accounting experience and is an enrolled agent eligible to practice before the IRS. She is a Senior Accountant on the Laciak>cpa team, assisting with client accounting activities which includes keeping up with everchanging tax laws.

“Since day one of working with Laciak Accountancy Group, I have been able to push myself to learn something new every day,” says Mackenna. “In public accounting, laws are ALWAYS changing, and every single client is unique in their own way.”

With several years’ experience working in public accounting, Mackenna enjoys the benefits that come along with working for a family-owned accountancy group.

“Working for a family-owned firm, the entire team is very family-oriented and that is one thing I value most,” says Mackenna. “They encourage you, teach you, and value work-life balance.”

When she’s not at the office, you can find Mackenna enjoying family time, watching sports, reading a book, or spoiling her German Shepherd fur baby.
