Chelsea Kraft Principal Salmon Arm +1 778 283 9575

As a principal in the Salmon Arm office of Grant Thornton, I leverage my personal background in small business with over 14 years of accounting experience to provide exceptional service and advice to our clients.

Since obtaining my Chartered Accountant designation while working with BDO Canada LLP, I spent over three years in local government before returning to public practice at Drew Lee-Hai, a firm which joined Grant Thornton in 2018. This experience, combined with having been raised in a family business, has given me a passion for helping small to medium-sized businesses achieve their goals.

I am proud to serve as a director with the Salmar Community Association, a non-profit organization that operates two movie theatres in Salmon Arm and supports countless initiatives in Salmon Arm and surrounding areas. I also enjoy working with a variety of community groups to provide support to entrepreneurs and other businesses.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, enjoying the beautiful community that we are so fortunate to live in!
