SENIOR PERFORMANCE AUDITOR
Sunny McLernon joined the San Diego City Auditor’s Office in 2011. She has been working in the public sector for close to 15 years, with the vast majority of her career doing performance auditing. During this time period, Sunny has made recommendations that span many topics—such as State recycling, Medi-Cal operations, social service funding, succession planning, and contract oversight—to help improve State and local government. While at the California State Auditor’s Office, in addition to performance auditing, she was a specialist responsible for handling public record inquires, monitoring certain legislation, and preparing analyses of audits requested by the legislature.
