Presenter Bio:

As a CA and having worked extensively in the area of tax, both personal and corporate over the past 12 years, it's safe to say this is my happy place.

Although, I do know that for many the word tax doesn't always bring happy thoughts, it's my mission to change that. My goal is to share my knowledge and expertise with you to bring new awareness and understanding when it comes to tax implications and planning. Nothing brings me more joy than when a client finds out about a deduction they didn't know about — that's why educating clients is one of my favourite things to do!

I draw on years of experience that include working as a Chartered Accountant in one of the largest accounting firms in Vancouver, as well as working in the Finance Departments for a couple of high-tech companies. Currently, my portfolio of clients includes entrepreneurs in the retail, service and distribution sectors. I also provide in-house tax support for larger corporations.

I am also a mother of two active kids. So working with the ins and outs of personal taxes for sole proprietors and families, is something that I am very familiar with too.

Who Should Attend:

AAPS members with little to no background in filing taxes and those who would like to gain a better understanding of personal taxes. This will be a seminar fairly similar to the 2012 seminars, but if you have questions, please feel free to bring them. Not sure if this session is right for you? Contact us at
