Vice President of

Business Development



Mandy Smith, CPA

Mandy started her college career with an interest in marketing at Kansas State University. Over the course of her college experience, she switched her undergraduate degree to accounting. So now it only makes sense that Mandy ended up as the VP of Business Development at an accounting firm. After getting her Master’s in Accounting at the University of Missouri – Kansas City and obtaining her CPA, Mandy spent 5 years as a financial statement auditor at a public accounting firm.


Always drawn to social events, Mandy enjoys networking groups and meeting new people. Currently she assists in sponsoring the KC Crew Networking monthly meetups, and is on the board of her community HOA. She is also a committee member of ACG Next (Association of Corporate Growth).


Mandy enjoys being outside, being around friends and family, and cooking. She recently got married to her now husband, Colten. Mandy is quite the social butterfly and party planner. She likes to try local spots and have new experiences.
