Candi Avery

CPA, CGMA | Shareholder


This home-grown gal has spent her entire career at Clark Nuber and enjoyed every minute of it, working with “the most talented and knowledgeable not-for-profit accounting and tax experts in the Pacific Northwest.”

Well, allow us to return the compliment. Candi is a popular instructor for our Not-for-Profit Basics workshops, and she routinely speaks at external seminars geared to the not-for-profit professional. She earns high praise from her Clark Nuber colleagues for her leadership, and she “wows” her clients with her expertise and advice.

When she’s not out finding challenging opportunities for career and personal growth, Candi’s spending her time on (and in) the water. She and her family make twice-yearly trips to Hawaii and spend nearly every summer weekend boating and “Seadooing” on local lakes.
