In early 2017, I discovered my passion for helping those with overwhelming debt when I began my insolvency career at Grant Thornton. In my day-to-day role, I focus on educating individuals, families and small businesses in Nova Scotia on insolvency processes, and what solutions might be available for them.
I have a unique background, holding both a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Arts, with prior experience in the non-profit industry. I am also a certified Insolvency Administrator and Insolvency Counsellor with the Canadian Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals. Most recently, I was accepted into the CIRP Qualification Program and have begun working towards becoming a Licensed Insolvency Trustee.
In my personal life, I still hold true to my artistic routes as an avid reader and amateur photographer. I often go on local adventures with my partner, trying to capture as much as I can of our province’s natural beauty. I also enjoy giving back to my community, participating annually in volunteer work with Feed Nova Scotia and coordinating various fundraisers as part of Grant Thornton Limited’s Nova Scotia Social Committee.
“They saved my life – I felt like I had no way out from my financial problems but right from the start they showed me a way out. They don’t judge or talk down to you – they are awesome especially Kaitlyn.” – Jennifer P, Halifax
“Before going to see Kaitlin Verge at Grant Thornton I was feeling completely overwhelmed. I had sought advice from friends and family but things only became worse. After meeting with her I felt such relief. She had the answers to all my questions and made me feel confident that I could start over. Thank you for being so smart, professional, and organized.” – Anonymous Client, NS
