Paint by Numbers, Euchre, and re-watching movies because I have forgotten the plot.
What are you most passionate about?
I had an insightful teacher in grade 10 who encouraged me to pursue accounting as a profession and I have been passionate about it since then. Through opportunities given to me by friends and family, I was exposed to different small businesses and the challenges they face. Therefore what I most enjoy is talking to clients and seeing them succeed. I love working to understand their unique business, and being able to help them not only by providing good client service, but also being able to guide them through tricky situations, or conversations with CRA. I truly enjoy talking to my clients.
What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?
I am involved in my community, and always looking for new opportunities to serve local and international organizations. I am currently involved with SVET, which raises money for orphanages and children with disabilities overseas. I believe in volunteering and helping the community in any shape or form. I have also volunteered with Relay for Life and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Next year is going to be a big volunteer year, as my best friend and I made a commitment to volunteer at 30 organizations when we turn 30! If you have suggestions, let me know!
What do you feel has been the most important successes in your life?
Becoming a CPA. I’m incredibly happy to be able to wake up and do what I do every single day, I am so grateful for a job that makes me excited to go to work every morning.
If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?
I would be the Flash. I want to be super-fast, mostly because it would keep me warm (I’m always so cold!)
What are your favourite hobbies, sports team, and/or food?
My favourite hobby is stamp collecting. Yes, I am secretly a senior citizen at heart, but I prefer the term philatelist, which means one who studies and collects stamps. I enjoy the history of it and seeing the progression of stamps for each nation over time. I’m also a big movie fanatic. I will watch anything no matter the genre, regardless of how bad the Rotten Tomato ratings are. My favourite movies are Gladiator, A Knight’s Tale, and Wonder Woman.
