Senior Manager


A CPA since 1999, Kathy Naughton joined Eder, Casella & Co. in 2007, after teaching accounting at a community college for many years, among other accounting-related endeavors. At the firm, she fulfills accounting needs for clients in various manufacturing and service-oriented businesses. “I also prepare and review individual, partnership, and corporate income tax returns, and conduct audits of school district, governments and non-profit entities,” Naughton adds.


With a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration/Accounting from Roosevelt University in Chicago, Naughton — also a member of the Illinois CPA Society and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants — says her former life as a college instructor has paid dividends at Eder, Casella. “I do think my teaching background tends to help me in explaining complicated tax scenarios, so a client is able to better understand his or her options,” she says. “At our firm, clients also get the benefit of the people who work here, all committed professionals who work in a collaborative way to provide the best service possible. The firm is committed to the accounting profession. Management sets high standards, which benefit our firm as well as our clients.”
