My diverse accounting experience shows my love for anything financial and I know I can be a valuable asset to any business owner.
My accounting experience is diverse and the positions I have held have provided me with a wealth of valuable experience. While I have experience as an accountant, accounting manager, tax preparation, office administrator and accounting technician. I know that each company operates differently and I enjoy the challenge of calming the chaos in each business.
For many years, I operated an accounting office in Alberta. With a staff of four I managed bookkeeping/accounting for over 300 companies, both proprietorship and corporations, annually. My duties had me responsible for full cycle accounting, budgeting, forecasting, debt management, financial reporting, payroll, cash flow and human resources management. I have worked with charities completing tax returns, financial statements, reported to boards and completed fundraising reports. I have been responsible for year end reconciliations, bookkeeping, GST/PST returns, Excise returns, investment reconciliations, payroll, T4/T5’s, financial statements, Human Resources, corporate and personal income tax returns.
I have extensive experience with a huge variety of industries including, but not limited to, trucking companies, oil and gas, dental, liquor store, medical, retail stores, restaurants and farms.
My work experience has allowed me to grow and become confident in several areas, while learning new skills along the way. I have experience working with board members and shareholders. I am comfortable training others, public speaking and working as part of a team. I am confident using various computerized software, accounting and tax programs (Sage, Quickbooks, Caseware and more) as well as excel, word and more. I have a Bachelors’ degree in Education and a huge variety of post-secondary Business classes completed.
I have a calm approach to chaos and enjoy watching business owners succeed. I have a positive outlook and a can-do attitude that allows me to roll with change and accept responsibilities as they are offered. I look forward to discussing the opportunities available with your company.
