Kristen is a CFO in CLA’s CAAS practice specializing in the nonprofit and social services industry. She brings a depth of experience and passion to the nonprofit community. Kristen began her career by serving in a regional CPA firm’s nonprofit group. She then transitioned to a role as Controller for a large, multi-program social services agency in the state, where she managed the daily accounting functions, budgets, and annual audit of the financial statements and the employee benefit plan audit.
