Kimberly DeWoody, audit partner at Fort Worth, Texas-based Whitley Penn LLP, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Through her quiet leadership style and commitment to mastering the technical side of accounting, DeWoody has risen quickly in the field of accounting, becoming audit partner at a top 50 firm much sooner than she expected, and has developed a significant client base in the oil and gas space at Whitley Penn.
“Over the course of 13 years with Whitley Penn, I have been able to work with a variety of clients and oil and gas that quickly became one of my industry focuses for my client base,” she said.
Making partner at Whitley Penn, DeWoody said, was definitely a career milestone that came sooner than planned.
“There were many years of hard work that went into making that goal a reality, but I have also been surrounded by the firm’s partners, my colleagues and my family that supported me throughout my career at Whitley Penn to make that milestone possible,” she said.
Alongside her accounting career, DeWoody is actively involved in multiple community efforts. She currently serves on the board of the Parent Teacher Organization at her children’s school as well as the board development committee for Camp Fire First Texas, a youth development organization.
She is an active member of the Junior League of Fort Worth, where she has served in various roles and community placements over the past eight years. Previously, she served on the board of directors of Camp Fire First Texas, Casa Manana and Women’s Energy Network of North Texas.

Shell shut its Appomattox oil platform about 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana, joining BP, Chevron and Equinor in closing facilities in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico less than one month after Hurricane Laura.
The storm also turned off 8.6% of natural gas output from the Gulf of Mexico, BSEE said. A total of 2.1 Bcf/d was taken from the Gulf in July, according to the EIA.
