Leveraging 10 years of combined experience in internal and external audit, I am currently a senior manager in the Business Risk Advisory Services practice in Atlantic Canada, based in Halifax, NS.
I have spent the majority of my career working in internal audit and risk, and have focused on helping clients - including private companies, publicly accountable organizations as well as public companies - build and maintain strong and robust internal controls and business processes while mitigating risk. I have also helped clients improve their business processes by providing recommendations on how to strengthen the control environment when deficiencies are identified and consulting with them through the implementation process.
From time spent working in industry and public practice, I have extensive experience with NI52-109 and Sarbanes Oxley compliance testing and project management. I have completed work for clients to adequately document and update process narratives and related documentation as well as rationalize controls.
In addition, prior to returning to public practice in 2015, I spent time working in the internal audit department for a post-secondary institution in Nova Scotia.
Between 2013 and 2015, I acted as a Uniform Evaluation (UFE) Marker for the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, and participated in the UFE Board of Directors debrief.
During my free time I love to travel and spend time/keeping active with my dog, Finley. We love to hike local trails, run the beaches early morning and just generally be outside.
