I started working at MaterCare in September 2003 as administrative assistant to the Executive Director. Since 2009 I have been responsible for all aspects of the accounting department at MaterCare processing donations, ensuring charitable tax receipts are issued according to CRA regulations as well as receiving, transferring and overseeing funds for our projects, most recently our Project Isiolo in Kenya. I am also responsible for filing all provincial & federal government documentation including our Charity Return with CRA. In addition, I work with an independent auditor who carries out a Review of our financial statements annually prior to submitting to CRA.
My background has mostly been in the medical field with a diploma in Medical Office Administration. I have worked in several office settings including medical and various accounting departments. I upgraded my accounting skills part-time at Memorial University.
