Joni has been working with this firm since 1985. She is graduated from University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts and always had an affinity for numbers, so working with an accounting firm made sense. She says: The best part from my point of view is being self-employed which gives me freedoms that I would not otherwise have. In my spare time, I enjoy going to Mexico every winter for six weeks, spending time with my 8 grandchildren (soon to be 10) and enjoying the summer at our cottage in the Kawarthas.
I joined CPA4IT in 1999 as a co-op student. For 8 years I occupied various accounting positions including Account Manager before transitioning into the role of Office Manager. My main goals are to ensure that our office runs smoothly and we provide the best service possible to our clients. In my free time I like to spend time with my family and friends, read a good book and enjoy outdoors.
At CPA4IT, I am continuously learning new things. I enjoy that with technology consistently changing, CPA4IT is always being innovated and ahead of the curve with new technology. I’m excited to be part of an organization that truly values their staff members and clients.I graduated with a degree with honors, specializing in Accounting at York University.

I continue to take professional development courses to keep up with new changes and updates in the accounting profession.When I’m not working, I enjoy watching sports and spending time with my family including my Shih Tzu.
