Businesses engaging in M&A transactions face a range of complexities and I take great pleasure working closely with my clients to help them find solutions and reach their goals. As part of this commitment, I focus on identifying issues and red flags, and delivering timely, trusted advice to ensure solutions are discovered quickly.

Since first joining the Transactions team in 2014, I’ve supported buyers, sellers, and lenders by providing insightful and action-oriented transaction advisory services for several middle market engagements. Additionally, I oversee our business valuation practice, where we work on various engagements for a variety of clients delivering services and support for tax planning, financial reporting, litigation, shareholder information purposes and fairness opinions. My experience further includes support on sell side M&A engagements—from preparing confidential information memoranda and due diligence materials to assisting with capital support.

I’ve been privileged to work with clients from a variety of backgrounds—including middle market business owners, bankers, lawyers, and private equity firms—across sectors including manufacturing, distribution, oil and gas services, technology, not-for-profits, food and beverage and professional services. This diverse experience allows me to bring a broad perspective to client engagements and provide strategic solutions to solve problems.

I also believe in giving back to my community. Currently, I’m the Treasurer of Inglewood Childhood Development Centre, where my young son attends. In 2019, I joined and began presenting on financial literacy to members of DirectHer Network, which delivers workshops aimed at providing women the tools that empower them to elevate their careers.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and travelling.
