Accountant

I have over 25 years experience in bookkeeping/accounting. I started my career in accounting as a payroll clerk, then added accounts payable to my repertoire, carried on to a bookkeeper role and moved my way up to controller positions.

I have worked in many different industries; such as construction,hotels,restaurants,
manufacturing, import/export, public accounting and software.

I have integrated a 20 million company into a 50 million dollar company; which required teaching the accounting staff how to utilize a very complicated software system.

I have traveled extensively across North America; teaching employees of numerous different organizations how to use a fully integrated accounting software system.
