Personal

I grew up on the back of a horse in the foothills of Southern Alberta. I moved to Calgary, married a city boy and started our family. We currently live in Strathmore, where life goes at a slower pace – that is, until April rolls around! We spend much of our time outdoors camping, fishing and on the ATV trails.

Professional

I have been with Gregory Harriman since 2006 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I work with amazing people who have all taught me a great deal.

Personal

I was born and raised in rural Southern Alberta. I spent several years living in Calgary, going to university and experiencing the faster pace of city life. In 1999, I moved back to the enjoyment of small town living. For 11 years following that time I was fortunate enough to stay at home and raise two amazing daughters. This gave me the opportunity to be involved with school programs and after school sports and activities. I’ve spent time volunteering for various school and sport committees and other community organizations. In my spare time I really enjoy time with my girls, experiencing this beautiful province through hiking, golfing and cycling.

Education

I received my Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1995. Since then I’ve taken several weekend and night courses related to computers, bookkeeping and project management.

Professional

Over the past 10 years I’ve worked part time as a bookkeeper for two corporations as well as volunteered as Treasurer for community organizations.

In 2013, I had the opportunity to enter back into the work force and found a home at GH&A as an Accounting Technician. The staff members have been very welcoming and I appreciate the opportunity to advance my skills and knowledge within a great working environment.

Personal

I was born and raised in a small farming community in East Central Alberta. In 1991, my husband, Fred and I moved our family to Strathmore, where we have continued to enjoy the benefits of small town living and have been able to raise our 2 children, Shawna and Dallas. I was so blessed to have had the opportunity to have been a stay-at-home mom. I was very actively involved as a volunteer parent in their schools and other activities, as well as coaching and managing in their sports. In my down-time, I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, biking, ringette, gardening (not vegetable), and travelling with my husband.

Professional

My entrance back into the work world was in 1998, working for a local service plumbing company. I then moved to the construction industry, where I was for the past 9 years, working as a job/site supervisor for Trendsetter Homes in new home construction.

In January of 2013, I joined the GH&A team as an accounting technician. I have truly enjoyed the change and am grateful for all the new friends I have met.

Personal

I was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. I moved to Strathmore, Alberta in 2000 where I met my husband. I’ve seen the town grow exponentially in size and change throughout the years, in 2019 we moved to Carseland and we feel it is a great community to raise our son. I enjoy spending time with my family, yoga, karate, gardening, camping, and travelling.

Education

I am currently enrolled in SAIT’s Business Administration Diploma Program - Accounting major.  My previous education includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Regina in 1998 and a Masters in GIS from the University of Calgary in 2002.

Professional

From 2001 to 2013 I was self-employed as a bookkeeper/business owner for my husband’s and my business. I then moved on in 2013 as a part-time administrator/bookkeeper for our local food bank. In 2015, I found full time employment with GH&A as an accounting technician. It is nice to work in an environment where everyone is helpful and friendly. I continue to learn and add to my accounting skills as my employment progresses.

Personal

I was born and raised in Ontario. In 2016 my husband and I moved to Alberta to explore some new opportunities. My husband, son and I and our 2 dogs currently live in Chestermere. In the summertime you can find us either camping or making trips to the mountains to enjoy the great outdoors. I am also an officer with the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets, helping teach and mentor our youth. 

Education

I received my Diploma in Business Administration from Georgian College.

Professional

After graduating from Georgian College, I have worked in banking and emergency services in Ontario. When we moved to Alberta, I started working for a small accounting firm in Calgary. In August of 2021 I joined GH&A after my maternity leave. Everyone at GH&A has been very welcoming and helpful, and I appreciate the opportunity to work here.
