I am the eldest of six children born to immigrant parents whose goal was to have their children achieve success through opportunities that would not have been attainable had they stayed in their native country. I genuinely admire and respect their determination and fortitude as they have led by example with their ethics in family, community and work values. I grew up in a farm family and completed all of my formal education in Strathmore and Carseland schools, graduating from Samuel Crowther High School, a long…..long time ago. After graduation, I moved to Calgary where I worked in administrative positions in the insurance and banking industries, and finally with a law firm. The city was a great experience, but my heart was in the country and so I was lucky enough to marry a farm boy and move to Rockyford where we raised one son and two daughters. We now call Standard home and have added three granddaughters and one grandson to our family tree. My interests include attending theatre and musical productions with my gal pals, and on the complete opposite side of the coin, riding the back seat of the Harley with my husband, and although inexperienced, I am learning to spin my own fishing tales. Executive positions with both the Lionettes community service club and St. Rita’s Parish keep me busy on the volunteer side of my portfolio.
I have been employed by Gregory, Harriman & Associates since January, 1994, and have been with the firm through its amazing growth. I started out as your typical Girl Friday, with job responsibilities including receptionist, typist, accounts payable and receivable clerk, mail and banking, etc. Oh and yes, sometimes even housekeeping chores on late April nights, so that the office was nice and tidy to receive clients the next business day. Currently, my main role is that of lead typist responsible for the completion of our corporate client financial statement packages, which includes a variety of details and programs within the framework of the accounting field. There are new opportunities each day to learn and grow within the practice, the most enjoyable are the occasions when I have the opportunity to meet with both prior and new clients.

I grew up just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia and left home to explore western Canada in 1998. In 2011 our familiy moved to Strathmore to enjoy the small town living. Outside of work I can be found on the lake, in the mountains or cheering on kids at the rink.
After graduating from Charles P. Allen high School, I received an Executive Office Administration certificate. Since then, I have also completed Financial Accounting 1 and 2 through night classes at Sait. I spent eight years working at a hotel and resort management company. My first position was an Accounts Receiveable Clerk and later held the Corporate Accountant position before leaving the company. In 2008 I worked for a year in an accounting firm as an accounting technician before leaving to raise our daughter. After having 7 amazing years at home, I joined Gregory, Harriman & Associates in the fall of 2016.
