| I was raised on Rocky River Farm, the younger of two children. After graduating from Borden School I earned a Diploma of Biblical Studies at Bethany College. From there I attended the University of Saskatchewan where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) and a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting).
In pursuit of my Chartered Accountant designation, my husband and I moved to Spruce Grove, just outside of Edmonton and resided there for six years. During this time I worked for Hawkings Epp Dumont LLP.
I started as an articling student and left as the manager for a diverse set of clients. From multi-million dollar municipalities to not-for-profit organizations with annual revenue less than $10,000 per year to owner managed businesses to family tax returns; Iíve worked with an extensive group of clients.
