The experience of running a school store in her high school years shaped Sally’s decision to pursue her passion in business and numbers. After earning her Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Simon Fraser University, Sally began her accounting and tax journey at MNP and obtained her CA designation in 2014. She later continued her tax career at PwC where she started her specialization in the technology sector.
Sally joined Smythe in February 2019 to focus on working with privately-owned businesses and their shareholders in regards to their Canadian tax matters. Sally specializes in corporate tax planning, including corporate reorganizations and succession and estate planning. With over seven years of experience in serving small and medium enterprises, primarily in technology, real estate and professional services, Sally has assisted clients with corporate restructuring, Canada Revenue Agency audits and appeals, corporate and personal tax optimization strategies, buying and selling businesses and cross-border planning.
With a passion to coach, Sally is involved with the CPA Canada In-Depth Tax Course as a group study leader and the CPA Professional Education Program as a module facilitator and facilitator mentor. Outside of work, Sally enjoys going to fitness classes at the gym and exploring different hiking trails in the summer. Sally also loves to travel and is constantly counting down the days until her next adventure!
