What is your favorite quote and why?

There are so many great quotes; it is hard to narrow it down. Whenever I am feeling overwhelmed, I always think of this quote by New Brunswick politician Bill Hogan as it helps to put things into perspective and puts a smile on my face at the silliness of it: “How do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time.”

Another quote that really resonates with me is one by children’s health advocate Sam Allred: “All real growth takes place when we get outside of our comfort zones. The greatest impediment to growth is the time that is spent doing things you already know how to do – no matter how good you are at those things. Growth (especially rapid growth) is a personal choice. The currency required is the courage, willingness and discipline to step outside of your comfort zone and feel the butterflies.” 

If you don’t stretch yourself every day and do something that is out of our comfort zone you lose an opportunity for growth that day. I think of this quote often which keeps me on the path of growth and development. It gives me the motivation to continually take on new challenges.

What values do you live by?

MNP Values, which includes integrity, humility, respect, quality, valuing our communities and professions, valuing diversity and inclusion.

Why is it important for you to give back?

We all have gifts to share whether it is talent, time or treasure. I think it is important to give back for our communities and share our gifts. It is important for our own growth and development as well as the growth and development of those around us. I have been so fortunate to have others around me give back to the CPA profession as well as to the communities we work and live in.  They have made such a great impact in my life and I want to pay that forward.
