Thanks for taking the time to visit.  

I earned my CMA accounting designation in 2003 while I was working with KPMG owner managed business group here in Victoria.  Later I went back to the provincial government and then opened my own bookkeeping and accounting firm.  I sold that firm in 2010 when my daughter won a competitive process to attend a dramatic arts school in Ottawa.  While in Ottawa, I was a full time controller for two different businesses.  All in, I have 20 years experience working with small and medium sized business all across Canada.  I have a unique understanding of small business combined with experiences in public practice and government.  

I see myself as one of the many partners in your business.  In the same vein as "It takes a village to raise a child" I believe it takes a group of dedicated professionals to support a growing business.  I work closely with you, your year end tax accountant, lawyers, bankers and staff to help your business become what you want it to become.

‚ÄčProfessional Accountant & Bookkeeper

I have experience with a wide variety of businesses including investment holdings companies, professionals such as doctors and lawyers, trades, retail and services (see a complete list here).  I have set up many systems, so entrepreneurs are able to start taking care of their records on their own and then I help them transition to a managed solution.  I have a strong background in software implementation and testing, payroll, general ledger, complex multi-year, mutli account reconciliations and year end preparation (see a complete list here).  As an entrepreneur myself, I have the ability to communicate with both the business owner and the accountant.

On a more personal note, I believe in the axiom that reading is the only way to install new software in the mind so I read a lot.  I love sci-fi movies and TV shows.  I volunteer in the community - currently providing my skills pro bono to an heritage preservation organization.  I have two grown children who I couldn't be more proud of.  I'm a dog lover and I enjoy writing and decorating.  I've lived in Victoria for 25 years and I am very glad to be here.  As much as I miss Nova Scotia, the weather can't be beat!

I look forward to meeting you.
