Barbara Harkins, partner at CPA Consulting Group, has more than three decades of experience in the accounting industry. She received her undergraduate degree in Business from Western State College in Gunnison, CO, and has an MBA with a concentration in finance and accounting from Tulane University in New Orleans.
Barbara owned a small accounting firm for more than 25 years, providing tax and accounting services to small businesses, and was Deputy Director of Central Wyoming Hospice from 2002-2006. In 2006, she joined CPA Consulting Group and became partner in 2012.
She enjoys accounting because “it’s like working on a jigsaw puzzle fitting the tax and business pieces together in order to help our clients operate their businesses in an efficient and effective manner.”
Barbara and her husband Mark have lived in Casper since 1982, enjoying the lifestyle offered by a small, close-knit community. They are actively engaged in their church and outreach programs, and on her days off she can be found reading and gardening.
