In 1998, I immigrated to Canada, following my husband whom I’ve met while traveling South East Asia. We arrived in Vancouver with 9 backpacks and enough cash to get us going for while. We had no jobs, no friends, no family near by and no place to call home.
What we did have was determination to make a life for ourselves, and the baby we were expecting.
Being an immigrant in a new country, speaking little English, was an uphill battle. After settling in and being a stay at home mom for many years, I went back to school, taking a bookkeeping course at Vancouver Island University.
Bookkeeping was a perfect fit for me and I never looked back.
I know building a business takes time, dedication, perseverance and hard work. I’ve gone through many of the struggles common to business owners. And I know how important it is to create a tribe of people you enjoy working with and trust. I have been fortunate to have an incredible tribe myself and am extremely grateful that my clients consider me a part of their tribe.
I am a member of the “Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada” and am proud to have received my ‘Certified Professional Bookkeeper’ designation. This designation requires me to continually educate myself and keep current with what is happening in the industry.
I am very personable and pride myself in being a team player. I take my role as your bookkeeper very seriously as I am fully aware that I’ve been trusted to look after your livelihood.
I’m also straight to the point. If I see a problem or issue, I will let you know early on while identifying potential solutions. This requires flexibility on both ends, going with the flow and making changes when needed.
By working with me you will not only gain a certified professional bookkeeper, but also a team member that will support your business, your ideas, your dreams and your visions.
I look forward to connecting with you.
