Name an experience that has positively motivated you.

I got my first internship in my second year of university at the Municipality of CK. My manager told me that I would make a great Chartered Accountant. I had never heard of the designation but he motivated me to start researching it. That was a turning point in both my academic and professional career. After transferring to a school that offered a program for CA students, I wrote and passed my CA examinations and I am now only a few months away from earning my designation!

What did you do after high school?

I attended the University of Western Ontario

What are you doing now? 

I am an O&M Analyst at Union Gas in the IT Department

What is your #1 reason for choosing Chatham-Kent as “home”? 

It is hard to only pick one! I would have to say the proximity to larger cities (London, Toronto, Windsor, Detroit) while also being able to enjoy a small-town lifestyle.
