“I have worked in various capacities with Kirsten for several years. She is very knowledgeable and has a great ability to be able to convey information so that practitioners understand it and can apply what she is saying. Her common sense application of standards is appreciated and fits well with our firm needs. She has contributed to the successful growth of our firm as we expand our office and has been an invaluable resource for our small practice.”
Mid-sized firm (Saskatoon)
“I engaged Kirsten to perform an audit file inspection. I found she has in depth knowledge of the Canadian Auditing Standards and provided valuable recommendations to improve efficiencies in my audit file documentation. She has become a trusted resource for my firm.”
"We have attended several professional development courses with Kirsten as the instructor. We greatly appreciated her teaching techniques and overall approach to accounting and assurance, and since used her for numerous EQCR reviews and to help us improve engagement efficiency. She is readily available for advice and is very passionate about what she does. Her guidance through navigating and interpreting the handbook, effective engagement strategies, and communication is second to none. We highly recommend her services and will continue to use them ourselves."
"We initially engaged Kirsten to help us address the practice inspection report matters that were raised. Kirsten worked with us in developing and implementing an action plan so that we were ready when the practice inspector reviewed our files again the following year. We passed with flying colors and will not see the inspector again for another three years. That is a big relief to us. She has a practical approach which we really appreciate. We continue to use her services every year for professional development, file inspections and annual monitoring."
"We would just like to say thank you on behalf of the firm and all the partners for coming out to our office and providing an excellent professional development day. Everyone found the course to be both knowledgeable and engaging and we look forward to working with you in the future."
"The expertise that you brought to us during the monitoring engagement will not only help us meet our requirements it will also help us be more efficient. You have really been able to bring your “big firm” experience to us but in a way that fits a firm our size. You get it."
"Kirsten provided very valuable advice to me when I engaged her to be a second partner on a very challenging client issue. As a result of her guidance I was comfortable with next steps and final resolution, as was my client. I would not hesitate to work with her again."
"Kirsten reviewed our files and provided detailed recommendations on gaps and ideas for file efficiencies. Having gone through a full cycle now with the revised approach has saved us time and significantly improved our margins. I am more comfortable we are performing better engagements all around."
"I sincerely enjoy working with Kirsten and we are grateful that we have someone with her knowledge to turn to for assistance. Having another person with another perspective has provided me much needed relief as a sole practitioner."
"We appreciated working with Kirsten on this file efficiency review. She has really helped us save time in the approach to our engagements. We definitely plan on continuing to use her services to get us up to speed in the next couple of months as we just don’t have the time in-house to deal with this stuff."
