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.
