A member of a military family, Darlene Chapmen has been doing CPA work since she was 16 years old. She remembers the days of all accounting being completed by hand and has watched the processes change over her 30 years at small CPA firms. She has handled accounting, tax returns and office management.
She started with ILLINOISouth in 2003 and has been an asset to the team providing financial knowledge, planning of a growing budget and using her time of service to propose new ideas and ways to increase overall revenue. On the weekends you will find Darlene spending time with her family at Carlyle Lake, hanging out by the pool or cooking homemade meals.
