Kimberley DeJong

Bookkeeping Support Specialist

What are you surprisingly good at?

I’m really good at finding errors and discrepancies. I’m analytical by nature!

What are you most passionate about?

I’m very passionate about my family. My immediate family all live in Cambridge and my extended family are all within reasonable distance.

On the professional side, I’m passionate about client satisfaction. Being able to see my clients, interact with them, and solve their problems is what excites me and encourages me to do my utmost best for them.
I recently purchased a Jeep, a vehicle I have desired for quite some time and absolutely love it. It’s a Jeep thing!!!

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

Not anymore, but I used to be involved in Girls Travel Fast-Pitch softball as team manager.

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

Seeing the progression and successes of my two daughters has been the most important accomplishment of my life. It makes me feel like I did something right and that I raised them well, which makes me really proud about who they are becoming.

Another one of my big accomplishments is completing my first 5 km run. My team and I ran along the edge of the Niagara Falls and it was an amazing experience. I have been on a journey to improve my health. Changing your lifestyle is extremely difficult, so I’m really proud that I have been keeping it up. So far I have lost 30 lbs!

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

I want the power to heal; to take away illnesses, pain, and heartaches, and have a world where no one has to ever endure hardship.

Anything else?

I love to bird-watch, hike, cook, bake, play Black Jack and drink wine (Italian or French red wine is preferred). I’m also a huge Blue Jays fan!
