As the principal and leader of the Grant Thornton construction, real estate and hospitality sector group for PEI, I provide assurance and business advisory services to a variety of island businesses, not-for-profits, and government organizations in the PEI market. I help companies navigate large audit engagements—ensuring they meet compliance reporting requirements under various accounting standards including, ASPE, IFRS, ASNPO and USGAAP.
Over the years, I’ve helped both large and small organizations grow and thrive—on and off the island. I completed secondment with the Grant Thornton Boston office and a US public company in the manufacturing industry, and have helped countless organizations navigate reporting complexities of operating or selling products internationally.
An alumni of the University of Prince Edward Island, education continues to be very important to me. I take courses to remain up to speed on the latest accounting standards rules and regularly attend industry-hosted events so I’m aware of current trends, challenges and opportunities.
When I’m not at work or furthering my education, I enjoy giving back to the PEI community. I have been a volunteer and board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters PEI, a member of the Charlottetown Chamber of Commerce and a strong supporter of the PEI Humane Society. I also feel it’s important to give back to our business community through strategic partnerships with such organizations as the Tourism Industry Association of PEI and the Construction Association of PEI.
