Gwen Story

Senior Manager

What are you surprisingly good at?

I don’t know if I’m good at it, but surprisingly, I really enjoy public speaking, especially if I’m well prepared! I like to share my thoughts and knowledge with others in this way. I see it as an opportunity to de-mystify accounting.

What are you most passionate about?

I am passionate about offering guidance to my clients and staff wherever possible, and I firmly believe in treating people with respect and honouring my word.

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

Outside of RLB, I am the treasurer for the Grand River Chapter of the Canadian Condominium Institute. And this may not be too surprising, but I’m also on the board of directors for the condominium I own.

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

I am a proud mother of a wonderful son and daughter. It’s a mother’s dream to see her children grow to be happy and successful, and I definitely feel that way!

Professionally, I am proud of being part of a successful condominium audit practice and getting my CGA designation later in my career.

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

Foresight… if only I knew then what I know now!

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

I enjoy spending my spare time with my partner. I like reading, watching the birds inundate my bird feeder, and the occasional game of golf on a nice summer day.
