As a Tax Partner in Barrie, I have the pleasure of advising many owner-managers throughout Simcoe County on how they can structure their business and personal affairs to minimize the impact of taxes. I enjoy collaborating with our highly-skilled business advisory teams to bring creative solutions to our clients and provide our people with enriching professional opportunities for growth and development.
A native of small-town Newfoundland and Labrador, I began my professional career with a big-4 firm in Halifax where I earned my CA designation. I have used my designation to pursue new life and professional experiences across Canada, including amazing experiences while living in Yellowknife NT, St. Catharines ON, and St. John’s NL. Having moved to Barrie in 2016, I am excited by the strength and diversity of our client base and the greater business community throughout Simcoe County.
Throughout my career, I have held a number of different community roles, including working with children as a hockey and baseball coach. Presently, I am an active member of the Barrie-Huronia Rotary Club and I serve as a member of the Vocational Committee where we fund various youth educational endeavours and help the disadvantaged in our community re-engage their careers. I am also an active member of the Simcoe chapter of Innovators Alliance (IA) and a member of the IA Board of Directors.
My life-long love of sports and athletics has led me to become a dabbler at many things, but an expert at none. My favourite activities include cycling, skiing and racquet sports—which are all activities I enjoy with my family.
