A former Delaware resident was recently honored with a “Women to Watch” award from the Greater Washington Society of CPAs.
Liisa Warden is a 2002 graduate of Hayes High School and the daughter of Dierdre and George Warden of Delaware.
She is a senior manager for Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LIP, in Washington, D.C. She was honored by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Greater Washington Society of CPAs as one of five 2015 Women to Watch Awards recipients.
Warden received the “Emerging Leader” award for her client leadership and her advocacy for women in the accounting profession. She has served on a number of committees and holds leadership roles in Commercial Real Estate Women D.C., an organization that supports women in real estate, and also spearheads events for Baker Tilly’s D.C. office Growth and Retention of Women committee, a program that promotes and advocates for the retention and advancement of women.
Warden serves as treasurer of the Bowen McCauley Dance Company and volunteers with organizations that rescue homeless and abandoned dogs and cats.
The Women to Watch Awards program was established in 2013 to highlight the accomplishments of women in the CPA profession.
“Liisa works very hard and deserves this recognition,” said Katherine Wiernicki, Baker Tilly regional assurance practice leader and a D.C. partner. “She understands the importance of being involved as a leader, not only at Baker Tilly, where she’s a rising star, but also in the business community. Liisa makes a difference both with Baker Tilly clients and employees, as well as through the various organizations she serves. Many look to her for insight, advice and guidance.”
Warden is a 2006 graduate of the University of Richmond (Virginia).
