Throughout my career, I have worked in many areas of the finance industry. I had humble beginnings starting as a receptionist and through hard work and determination, I was sponsored for the Certified General Accountant (CGA) program. I took a break throughout my career to gain a 4-year degree that I completed in 2 years. In 2014 I was awarded my CGA designation and then in 2015 my Chartered Professional Accountant designation.
Now, working as a Debt Solutions Professional with Grant Thornton, my favourite part of my job is being able to make a difference in the life of someone who is currently struggling financially, giving them new hope for their future.
I am an avid volunteer with my local hockey associations and have been volunteering with them for over 14 years. I started out as a team treasurer, but have now served as treasurer of the executive board for the last 3 years.
When I am not working, my favourite pastime is watching my three kids play and excel at the sports they love (hockey and baseball), as well as travelling to new and exciting places.
