Alex Mahan

CPA | Senior Manager

Intentional. Calm. Rule follower. A homebody who likes a good scare.

A native New Englander, Alex grew up watching her mom, a CPA, run her own audit practice while attempting to share her French cooking skills with her daughter. Years later, Alex followed in her mom’s footsteps—as an auditor, definitely not a cook.

After graduating top of her class at the University of San Francisco, Alex began her career in the Bay Area. Several years later, she scooped up her cats and her accounting degree and drove to Austin to continue auditing. Never intending to become a Texan, she nevertheless lived in the Lone Star State for nearly a decade before heading back to the West Coast to Oregon—and Perkins.

Engaging and intellectually curious, Alex has a knack for connecting with audit clients. Her ability to learn about businesses and ask the right questions helps her synthesize business insights that help organizations be both efficient and compliant.

A homebody, Alex enjoys gardening and cuddling with her family by the fireplace in their cozy 1920s home. Between her two small kids, a hockey-playing husband, two German Shepherd mix puppies, a cat, and a fish, the Mahan household is seldom quiet. To keep things lively, she listens to true crime podcasts and celebrates Halloween, her favorite holiday, with two 12-foot skeletons in the front yard and all the trimmings.
