Katy Burns


Katy, a licensed CPA, is the CFO at Fíonta and is responsible for finance, accounting, compliance, corporate systems and vendor relations. As part of the Executive Team, she supports project management, human resources, and facility management. Katy also serves as the Secretary on the Fíonta Board of Directors.

Katy worked in the assurance practice at Ernst & Young and also assisted in the sale of a DC-based commercial finance firm. When Katy first learned about Fíonta, she was drawn by the company’s mission to help those who help others. While she began her career in public accounting for multi-national corporations, Katy always intended to redirect her experience in support of nonprofits.

In her free time, Katy loves to run, hike, and explore the live music scene in D.C. She is a travel enthusiast who is always seeking new adventures, like scuba diving off the coast of Guadeloupe to walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain, to name a few. She also is a long-time volunteer and advocate for Miriam’s Kitchen, an organization that is working to end chronic homelessness in D.C.
