Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Accounting & Finance

School of Business

I enjoy teaching at this college. This year I am teaching management accounting (ACCT 207), audit (ACCT 380), and introductory accounting (ACCT 110). If you are a student registered in one of my courses, I look forward to meeting you.

I have been here for the past twelve years and have taught our introductory financial accounting, intermediate financial accounting, management accounting (207), audit, and fraud awareness courses. I have also had the opportunity to hold the roles of Acting Chair, Program Leader, Co-op & Internship Coordinator, and Co-op Field Instructor.

Outside of the college I have taught Module 1 and Module 3 in the legacy Chartered Accountant School of Business program and the financial accounting topics for the legacy Certified Management Accounting Program. Prior to teaching at Camosun I taught introductory accounting in Nanaimo at Vancouver Island University (it was Malaspina at the time) and introductory accounting as well as, computer applications at North Island College in Courtenay.

I have a Masters of Education through Simon Fraser University and a Bachelor of Recreation Studies and Physical Education from the University of Manitoba. Now a CPA, I was originally a CA and hold an American designation - the Certified Fraud Examiner.

It’s a privilege to teach these challenging and rewarding courses.
