Katy Al-Khalidi

CPA | Principal


A mom, hiker, traveler, and transplant to the Pacific Northwest from Buffalo, NY, chances are you will find Katy on the move.

When she’s not out and about, Katy can be found spending time with her son and husband, reading one—or more—of the 50 novels she reads each year, listening to true crime podcasts, or cheering on her favorite football team, the Buffalo Bills.

Katy is a principal in the firm’s audit and assurance practice. She specializes in the real estate and hospitality industry, including commercial real estate clients and hotels, as well as affordable and low-income housing. Additionally, she has extensive experience working with employee benefit plan audits. Katy also serves as a mentor and coach in the firm’s internship program, in addition to creating and facilitating training programs geared toward both internal and external audiences.
