WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 4, 2015) – Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) is pleased to announced that Monica Modi Dalwadi, partner in the firm’s Tysons Corner, Virginia office, recently was honored by SmartCEO magazine as one of the 2015 Brava! Award winners. Dalwadi, who is a leader in the firm’s risk and internal audit consulting practice, was recognized for her professional accomplishments and her commitment to giving back to her local community.

The Brava! Awards were established to honor female business leaders for their motivation, success and contribution to the community. Brava! Award winners are “exemplary leaders of both their companies and their communities. They encourage local philanthropy, mentor up-and-coming leaders, and set their companies on a path to tremendous growth.”

“It is an honor to be recognized as a 2015 Brava! Award winner,” said Dalwadi. “I strongly believe the key to success is stewardship; if you value your assets—at home, at your workplace and in the community—you will make a difference in the lives around you.”

Dalwadi joined Baker Tilly more than twelve years ago and has made a vital impact in the firm’s risk and internal audit consulting practice. She is well known among the not-for-profit and higher education industries for delivering quality internal audits, risk assessments, fraud reviews, and strategic consulting to her clients. Dalwadi also chairs the firm’s diversity and inclusion efforts. Some of her professional accolades include being awarded as VSCPA’s Top 5 Under 35 in 2013 and recognized as a SMARTCPA in the September 2011 issue of SMARTCEO magazine.

Dalwadi’s motivation and enthusiasm extends into the community as well. She is currently a board member of the National Kidney Foundation and previously served on the board of the Washington Improv Theatre, where she led their most successful fundraiser to date.

Office Managing Partner – DC Metro Area Todd Stokes adds: “Monica’s commitment to Baker Tilly and her community has very appropriately earned her this award. She has the keen ability to combine entrepreneurial spirit with a dedication to philanthropy to leave a positive impact on those around her.”
