With 18 years of experience, Christa Casey has become an expert in auditing not-for-profit organizations.

Now, over 90% of Christa’s clients are from the not-for-profit sector, ranging from small grassroots community organizations to very large national associations.
Christa also teaches risk based auditing standards to Welch staff and develops tools to assist them in the risk assessment process for each audit engagement. For the past five years, Christa has been a Practice Inspector and now a File Reviewer for the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario (ICAO).
In June 2014, Christa was recognized as a Forty under 40 award recipient for her professional accomplishments as well as her community involvement.
