Our Firm’s Journey

Christy White established Christy White Associates in 2010 having assembled a time tested group of professionals and loyal client base over a 10 year period with her former firm. Years before that, Christy started as a staff accountant with an international CPA firm. Over the next twenty-four years, she proceeded to specialize in governmental audit and consulting, including seven years with School Services of California, Inc. during which she became a leading statewide expert on school district finance and accounting.

Christy White Associates is based in sunny San Diego, hence our ocean motif, and has expanded to a total of three offices to serve all of California. Our firm continues to grow in core firm clientele industries, which include; K-14 school districts, local governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, and small businesses.

Partner Michael Ash heralds from Texas and New Mexico having worked for both international and regional CPA firms, as well as internal audit. Michael specializes in governmental and charter school audits. He is also our Quality Control Partner, ensuring that all our audits are done in accordance with our high quality control standards.

Principal Heather Daud has over eight years of experience planning, directing, and supervising audits of K-12 school districts.  She has also been providing consulting and training services helping districts in various areas.  Heather graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

In 2012, Christy White Associates opened our Alameda office to serve the San Francisco/Bay Area. We are enthusiastic about the proximity we have to our current Northern California audit clients and future clients!

In many ways our journey is just beginning and that is what makes it so much fun! Every day we are excited about working with our clients and helping them not only get through the issues that affect them but get ahead.
