I am the Director of Finance at BC Diabetes
in Vancouver, Canada. We aim to empower people who have a diabetic condition to take control of their health, improve the outcomes of diabetics in British Columbia, and connect people with cutting edge clinical research to help our own community and diabetics worldwide.
This position pushes my professional skills to the limit while giving me the opportunity to be part of delivering something very special to my community.
In addition, as a consultant, I'm very passionate about helping organizations be sustainable. At Yupana
, my goal is to use my competencies as a Certified Management Accountant
, communicator and active networker to help startups, existing businesses and non-profits develop reinforced business models that help them last.
What this means is that I want to make sure that clients, specifically those contributing to environmental and social good, are able to last and do the good work that they do regardless of funding, economic situations, leadership changes and other radical shifts.
It's my dream to be able to help these kinds of organizations exist in the market and to be able to do this as a strategic partner is an amazing reward.
I'm on the board of Georgia Strait Alliance
, an organization committed to the well-being of the Salish Sea in southwestern British Columbia (and northwestern Washington State). I wear my finance and accounting hat with them, but they teach me something new with every engagement.
