"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 and children’s sports organizations draws her to provide this professional experience to numerous not-for-profit and charitable organizations. Organizations such as churches and related religious organizations have been large focus points for her continually growing not-for-profit client network. In addition, Karen has served in various capacities on not-for-profit and charity boards.

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

When not at the office, Karen enjoys spending time with family, traveling and other leisurely activities such a boating and motorcycling.
