While born and raised in Castlegar, BC, I graduated from UBC in 2006 before obtaining an articling position with KPMG in Vancouver. By 2007, I had earned my CA designation and I’ve been employed in public practice ever since. In 2010, I returned to Castlegar with my husband and joined the Grant Thornton team as a senior manager where I focus predominantly on conducting and leading audit engagements of public sector, private owner-managed and not-for-profit organizations.
While acting as an audit manager in Vancouver, I was a member of a subgroup of partners and managers that specialized in the audits of mid-sized private and not-for-profit enterprises. I was also heavily involved in training new staff and helped to develop a “mock audit” training program for the Vancouver office.
