Suzanne V. Kasten

Tax Coordinator

Suzanne joined the Matter team in 2004 and sits in our St. Louis office. She brings an incomparable eye for detail and relentless focus on quality to Matter’s operations, and she continues to draw on her background in customer service and administrative support.

Suzanne’s role has evolved throughout her Matter career from part-time administrative assistant to full-time tax coordinator. She enjoys the opportunity to learn about the ever-changing tax landscape in order to provide best-in-class service to Matter families.

A lifelong St. Louisan, Suzanne earned her BA in economics from the University of Missouri, St. Louis. She is very close to her family and loves spending time relaxing with her husband and three children—on the screened porch in the summertime and around the backyard fire pit once the weather turns cold.

When she has moments to herself, Suzanne enjoys working on crossword puzzles, writing letters, and listening to music, and snuggles with her dog are a daily delight.
