"It’s a privilege to work with people navigating their way through the business world.”

Karen launched her career in Newfoundland in 1990 working with a national accounting firm. In 1998, she transitioned to managing her own practice until 2003 when she moved to Ottawa and joined McCay Duff LLP.  Karen became a partner in 2009, providing services to a client base that spans multiple industry sectors. Her wide range of professional services includes accounting, assurance, business consulting, taxation compliance and strategic planning to small and medium-sized businesses.

Her keen interest in the accounting profession stems from her experience growing up in an entrepreneurial family business environment. Her involvement in her local church community has led to a specialty in providing professional services to churches and related religious organizations and has opened doors to volunteer positions at all levels including serving on the boards of various not-for-profit and charitable organizations.

Karen has developed a niche market in the veterinary industry, providing professional expertise to veterinarians and veterinary professional corporations through effective business consulting and strategic tax planning.

When not at the office, Karen enjoys spending time with family, travelling, and walking the golf course trying to improve her score.

“Karen has been very helpful to us as we continue to navigate the uncertainties of managing a new start-up small business during a pandemic. We truly appreciate her and the knowledge that the entire McCay Duff team offers to our business.”  M. J.
