What are you surprisingly good at?

I’m really big on meal planning and budgeting. I plan family meals for the entire month and we are really good at sticking to it!

 

What are you most passionate about?

I’m passionate about helping our clients succeed. It’s not always about us! What separates RLB from other accounting firms is how much we truly care about our clients and their success.

 

What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?

No, not at the moment. I sat on a couple of boards in the past (most recently the Guelph Humane Society and a soccer association). At this time in my life, it’s all about my kids. They are joiners! They love joining everything there is available to do. Shuttling them from one sport to the next (soccer, swimming) is where my time goes outside of work.

I really admire how the Guelph neighbourhood we reside in is a community of families. Everyone is friendly and gets along great. I hope to see this caring community grow for many years to come.

 

What do you feel have been the most important successes in your life?

Having a great family. I have three young children and a wonderful husband. Being able to balance family time and have a career has been a big accomplishment for me thus far.

 

If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?

I want to be in two spots at the same time so teleportation would be my superpower of choice.

 

What are your favourite hobbies, sports team, and/or food?

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my friends and family. My husband and I recently bought a tent trailer so we have been camping with the kids a lot!
