Real Estate Advisor
With 17 years of experience in real estate, finance, banking, accounting,
legal contracts, and marketing, I seamlessly navigate my clients through
the complexities and nuances of their real estate transactions.
I was born and raised in our beautiful city of Victoria. After graduating
from the University of Victoria in 1995 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree
(with distinction), I relocated to Vancouver to start my professional
career. I articled for my Chartered Accounting designation with KPMG,
receiving my CA in 1998 (member from '98-'13). As the Tax Manager for
KPMG’s Vancouver Tax Practice, I gained invaluable experience managing and
growing corporate assets and related individuals’ wealth. I subsequently
joined on with a client as Controller in 2000, moving on to become the Vice
President, Finance with an international franchising and real estate
development company in 2005. It was with this billion-dollar enterprise
that I honed my real estate, finance and marketing skills. During this
time, I also received my Master of Business Administration from Queen’s
University. In 2008, I obtained my Residential Real Estate License and
relocated back to Victoria to be closer to family.
I enjoy being a Board Member of the Greater Victoria Housing Society, a
leader in the development and provision of high quality affordable rental
housing in Victoria. I also enjoy being a Member of the Greater Victoria
Chamber of Commerce and the Victoria Entrepreneurial Club.
When I'm not focused on my clients or my community, I cherish spending time
with my two beautiful daughters, Scotia and Siena.
