I was born in Ponoka, spent my school years in Wetaskiwin, college in Red Deer, and ultimately returned to Ponoka in 1988. I started working at Rowland Parker & Associates in January of 1989, starting with T4/T5 prep, then as tax season staff, and moved into an admin position following tax season that same year. I am currently the Firm Administrator and my other areas of specialty are Quickbooks and Taxprep, and I am the Assistant Onsite IT person. My community involvement over the years has included Victim Services, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Ponoka Minor Hockey, Ponoka Stampede, and the Ponoka & District Health Foundation. I enjoy spending time outside, working in my yard in the summer, and I keep active with the gym, hiking and curling....and trying to keep my 'very active' dog entertained! I also enjoy traveling, and am always exploring new activities, adventures or destinations that ultimately provide me with an ever-changing 'bucket list' to keep checking off.
