Building strong relationships is crucial to creating a comfortable space where my clients feel supported and confident in the business decisions they need to make. For more than 24 years, I’ve supported our clients with a wide range of assurance and auditing services, including financial statement preparation, complex accounting, governance, and risk management. Throughout that time, I’ve served a broad range of public and publicly accountable companies and privately held businesses in the retail, transportation, higher education, and private equity sectors.
As the Managing Partner for Nova Scotia based in our Halifax office, I practice a forward-looking approach and value collaborative partnership. Whether leading a team of highly skilled professional advisors or assisting our clients, I rely on active listening and collaboration. As a past assurance service leader, I understand the importance of both a holistic and individual approach to every business situation. During my tenure, I developed a good understanding of the technical side of our practice which helps me identify opportunities and create strategies to develop my client’s business potential.
Committed to my team and their professional development, I use every opportunity to share professional insights with young colleagues. Having completed our firm’s “LEADer as Coach” program, I dedicate my time to mentoring and supporting the growth of our people which I find very rewarding.
Supporting my community is important to me, which is why I joined the Neptune Theatre Board of Directors over 8 years ago providing governance and strategic advice on the future of the foundation and its operations. Currently I serve as a member of the executive and audit committees there.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and taking in Nova Scotia’s natural beauty, or travelling to explore new places together.
