Most of my life is spent with my amazing daughters, and in some way or other involves hockey. To say the least, I love hockey, and so do my girls. All three of them play, and when I’m not accompanying them to their games and practices, I’m either coaching the Flamborough Falcons rep team or helping out at the Flamborough Girls Hockey Association. I act as treasurer for them, which is a nice tie between my career and my hobbies. I’m also one of the few people that doesn’t mind dealing with the nitty gritty accounting issues, so it really is a perfect position for me.
My professional experience is also a great asset in other aspects of my life, because it allows me to support the people and organizations that I believe in by providing them with financial guidance. The Burlington Community Foundation is one such organization, and I was initially drawn to them because they offer assistance to all kinds of charities, community associations, and foundations. It’s incredibly satisfying to be able to help maintain the mission of this great organization, which collaborates with people and businesses to create endowments and bestow grants for charitable organizations. I sit on their board and also chair their Growth and Development Committee, where I help to build the foundation’s assets and investments, and create a supportive network of lawyers, investment specialists, and other accountants.
