As the Regional Managing Partner for Atlantic Canada, I work with my colleagues across the region to provide our clients with insight and advice to support their sustainable growth. Also in my role as a member of the National Management Committee and Senior Leadership Team, I am focused on working collaboratively with my team to develop and execute on the strategic direction for Grant Thornton, with a commitment to client service at the core.

I’ve had the opportunity to share my experience with my profession and numerous community organizations. I’ve volunteered with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nova Scotia, and I’m currently the Chair of the Accounting Education Foundation of Nova Scotia. I am currently treasurer for the Atlantic Chapter of the International Women's Forum and a board member for Dalhousie University. I have also served on numerous boards, including 10 years in various executive roles on The Discovery Centre Board, and served for 3 years as Chair of the Professional Services Division for the United Way of Halifax's Workplace Campaign and on the Halifax Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
