Outside of my wonderful family I have two great passions in life, building effective, modern cloud-based bookkeeping systems and exploring the backcountry of Vancouver Island. I have over 13 years in the bookkeeping profession including time spent supervising a team of bookkeepers for a national public accounting firm and as a bookkeeping instructor at the local college level. So, when not building cool bookkeeping systems you can find me running on one of the many beautiful trails in the Comox Valley or hiking in the backcountry of this amazing corner of the world!
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.
