I was born and raised in Saskatchewan, and moved to Calgary in August 2012. Immediately upon arriving in Calgary, I stumbled upon the insolvency industry, and since then have never looked back. To me, there is no greater feeling than being able to help another, and I am grateful for a career that allows me to do so each and every day.
As an Estate Manager, my clients describe me as a non-judgmental, kind and compassionate individual, with a warm and welcoming personality. In May 2013, I successfully obtained my Insolvency Administration Certificate, in July 2018, I obtained my ICQC (Insolvency Counsellor’s Qualification Course), and currently I am pursuing my CIRP designation. My hope is to achieve my long time goal of becoming a Licensed Insolvency Trustee in 2020.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my four adorable nieces, exercising, and doing anything outside!
