As a Partner in Grant Thornton’s Insolvency practice, helping people solve their debt problems energizes me.  Over the past 25 years working in both corporate and consumer insolvency, I’ve focused on informing Albertans of viable options to resolve their financial difficulties.

In 2007, I received my CIRP designation and appointment as Licensed Insolvency Trustee.  I’m also a member of the Canadian Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals (CAIRP) and have served on the Board of Directors for the Alberta Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals (AAIRP).

I’m dedicated to bringing awareness to the importance of financial literacy and sharing my insights as a Licensed Insolvency Trustee through various media platforms and presentations.  My op-ed piece on “The Culture of Credit” was published in The Globe and Mail and, over the last 5 years, I’ve been a regular commentator on Global News Morning Edmonton’s “Money Smarts” segment which you can watch on the last Monday of every month.

When I am not working, I enjoy hiking with my dog, Einstein, and unwinding by playing my piano.
