PERSONAL COMMENT

I grew up in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and have since made London my home.  I believe my East Coast roots play a considerable role in how I interact with clients.   It is especially important to me to explain options and solutions to our clients in a way that is understandable and meaningful to them, and that our office is a friendly place where people like to be.  I am an avid sports fan, and approach life as if it is a team sport.  I have learned so much by surrounding myself with a lineup of family, friends and coworkers, and I play an active role in the coaching and development of future Chartered Professional Accountants at our firm.

I enjoy exploring just about anything new with my husband and travel buddy, and endeavor to cross a few more adventures off the bucket list each year.  I love fitness, good food and wine and the great outdoors.  When I’m not in the office, I can often be found on the golf course or elbow-deep in yet another home renovation.

My goals for the future are to continue assisting our clients with their financial information, so they can focus on running their businesses, while making an impact on the London community.
