After growing up on Vancouver Island, I made the easy decision to return to its natural beauty and recreational opportunities in 1993. Prior to moving back, I had spent eight years in Vancouver for schooling and articling with the international accounting firm Coopers & Lybrand (now Pricewaterhouse Coopers).

After completing my articling at a local accounting firm, I spent some time working in industry as a controller of a logging company. Subsequently, I joined Derek L. Chase & Associates Ltd. in 2017 and began working in the insolvency field. In June 2020 I completed my studies and was granted a license by the Federal Government to be a Licensed Insolvency Trustee.
I’ve worked in public practice accounting since 1976 and have been employed at Chase Sekulich for the last 18 years. My daily work includes compilation engagements, bookkeeping, personal and corporate income tax and providing training and support for our clients’ accounting staff.
You could say I’m a true Island girl. I was born in Haida Gwaii, raised in Prince Rupert (Kaien Island) and moved back and forth between Campbell River and Denny Island over the past 30 years. I have since decided that Campbell River is my forever home. I have several years of bookkeeping experience from a variety of industries such as forestry, hospitality, retail, service & repair. When I’m not working I’m usually hanging out with my husband, my dog and a good book.
Originally from Calgary I have lived in Campbell River since 2018. I have many years of experience working in a reception/administrative role and appreciate the opportunity it gives me to meet and communicate with a variety of wonderful people every day. It is great to be a part of this firm and to work with such talented and caring people. My hobbies include walking my dogs, reading and spending time with my family.
