After many years of trying, my sister, Robin, finally succeeded in getting me to work for her during tax season. I was raised in Kaslo BC and attended Henderson Business College in Calgary in the “70s”. I have been working in the automotive industry for 35 years, mainly NAPA, and 8 years for Weyerhaeuser Lumber mill in Big River, SK. I retired Sept. 2018. I love to travel with my sister and her husband Billy. I enjoy puzzles, cross stitch, fishing… (not ice fishing – ice is for drinks). Life is good!
