About Sue Talkington

Sue Talkington joined our team in 1989. Though she has worked with a variety of clients throughout the years, Sue primarily focuses her practice on nonprofit, government, healthcare, low income housing tax credit entities and employee benefit plans. But her main passion lies in fraud deterrence and detection, litigation support and forensics. She works with clients to identify areas of opportunity and danger by way of operational and internal control review.

Sue grew up in Florida and moved to Arkansas with her family at the age of fifteen. She currently resides in Alma, Arkansas. When away from the office, Sue enjoys spending time with her grandchildren and showing poodles.
