Outside of my wonderful family I have two great passions in life, running and hiking the backcountry of Vancouver Island and providing solid and dependable bookkeeping for our clients. I love applying my accounting knowledge and my computer programming experience to my clients books to look for ways to increase efficiency and build automation into their systems. I have over 12 years experience in accounting, including: Financial Controller of a large grocery store, the supervisor of a team of bookkeepers for a national public accounting firm and a bookkeeping instructor at the local college level. I also owned and operated a successful restaurant in Victoria BC before moving to the Comox Valley.
I completed my Diploma in Economy (majors in Management Accounting and Auditing) at the University in Siegen (Germany). Working for 5 years for one of the big 4 audit firms, gave me an insight into various companies and industries. I have also worked as Accountant and Group Financial Controller with international companies in Munich and Geneva. I was involved in all aspects of accounting, consolidation, reporting and financial controlling. In 2005 I moved to Vancouver Island and worked as bookkeeper and office administrator in the construction industry. Together with my partner I live on a hobby farm in Merville, where I enjoy taking care of our animals.
