“When working with clients, I remain open-minded and place an emphasis on maintaining continuous communication,” says Christy Beck. “I get great happiness from helping a client, co-worker, family member, friend or charity reach their goal, [and from] identifying an idea that helps grow a client’s business or improve controls or operations.” On behalf of CliftonLarsonAllen LLP, Beck has commented on draft guidance from standard-setting bodies, and she has brought new ideas to the firm regarding sampling techniques and enhanced efficiency. For the past 11 years, Beck has served in a leadership role at the Association of Government Accountants, a nonprofit with more than 15,000 members.
