Olivia Whipple, CIA, Owner and Founder of The Audit Library

Olivia is a Consulting Partner and co-founder at The Audit Library Consulting Group. She manages teams to perform assurance consulting engagements, develops risk-based audit plans, and creates custom audit governing documents for credit unions. Olivia has over fifteen years of financial institution and audit industry experience. She was an Audit Senior at a regional CPA firm, specializing in financial industry clients, prior to transitioning to Internal Audit. Olivia served as the Chief Audit Executive at a credit union with over $1.3 Billion in assets and was responsible for developing audit plans and programs, managing teams, and reporting results. Olivia worked directly with executive management, the Supervisory Committee and the Board of Directors, and implemented many cost and time-saving measures. Unable to find a solution for templates and the other required documents she needed as an audit leader, resulting in lost productivity when these were developed in-house, Olivia decided to create a service to fill this void in the market. In 2018, Olivia launched The Audit Library, an online document subscription service for Internal Auditors. A lifelong writer, Olivia authors The Audit Library Blog, an online publication about auditing theory, practice, and the unique challenges and opportunities auditors experience. In 2019, The Audit Library expanded into assurance consulting, upon the advice of clients who expressed the need for providers with industry experience. Olivia has volunteered and performed speaking engagements for various professional and industry organizations. Olivia holds a Bachelor of Arts from The University of Oregon and a Post-Baccalaureate Accounting Certificate from Portland State University. She is a certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and lives in the Charlotte, NC area.
