I enjoy the challenge and diversity of working with small businesses and their owners.  I completed my CGA designation in 1990 and was awarded a Fellowship (FCGA) in 2001.  I have been a professional accountant (CPA/CGA) for 25 years and have had the privilege of serving a variety of clients in BC and Manitoba. It has been rewarding to see my clients grow and succeed. I have seen a lot of changes over the years in the profession, taxation and technology and look forward to what the future holds. As a small business owner myself, my motto has always been to provide the attention and level of service that I would expect myself, and I have high expectations! It has served me well as some of my clients have worked with me for more than 20 years. My job satisfaction is a happy client!

When I am not in the office, I enjoy exploring the beauty of the West Coast:  by land, hiking and biking, and from the air flying my Cessna 182.

I discovered my love for all things financial shortly after graduating high school.  I immediately began pursuing my CPA/CGA designation, which I received in 2011 in conjunction with a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons). While working towards my designation, I gained valuable experience with a wide variety of industries, including construction, restaurants and hospitality, as well as working as an income and excise tax auditor with Canada Revenue Agency. 

I truly enjoy working with our clients and I find a great sense of satisfaction in helping them achieve their financial goals. I especially like to work with forward thinking and driven clients who value my advice.  I am interested in technology and enjoy using it to create efficient systems and processes for our clients.  I like the challenge of finding out what matters to each client and doing my best to deliver to them. Finally, I enjoy the challenge and reward of being a small business owner myself. 

When I am not in the office, I can be found on the beach, hiking our local trails and spending as much time as possible with my family.

Accounting Technician

I recently joined Sterling Stanford in the fall of 2016 after completing my Bachelor of Commerce degree in 2015. I am currently working towards applying for the CPA program. My previous work experience includes bookkeeping for a fair trade company, assisting with the high school provincial exam marking sessions for the Ministry of Education and coordinating over eighty volunteers for Tourism Victoria.

I was born and raised in Victoria, and enjoy an active lifestyle of biking, hiking and walking my dog. I have also been immersed in many different cultures from travelling to Japan, Europe, and Mexico.

Accounting Assistant

I am a third year accounting student at Camosun College, working towards my CPA designation. I bring many years of experience as an administrative assistant in an investment brokerage, where I assisted with various types of financial planning and retirement strategies. I also bring technical knowledge from time spent working in the local automotive industry both as a technician and a parts person, as well as being an automotive enthusiast. I have volunteered for many years with the Victoria Volkswagen Club as an organizer and participant. I grew up on the west coast of Vancouver Island and I am familiar with many of the outlying communities and their often specialized industries.

When I’m not in the office, you can find me out hiking with my dogs, surfing, or camping with my husband in our vintage Volkswagen van.
