Partner, Assurance & Advisory Services

It was a love of numbers and a great high school accounting teacher that inspired me to become an accountant. I started my career here at GGFL as a co-op student, and I’ve been here ever since. I’m fortunate to work with a variety of clients—many of whom are entrepreneurs and business owners. Finding ways to help them succeed is what keeps me motivated.

I am passionate about working with entrepreneurs—seeing them grow a business from scratch, and supporting them along the way. We’ve been with many of our clients across decades—and across generations. It’s a privilege to work alongside them and to be part of the same community.

The partners at GGFL and I consider ourselves to be entrepreneurs too. We’ve developed the firm over the years and seen our team grow and flourish. I think that experience and passion for business is what makes us great advisors. And it’s why we enjoy our work so much.

Deborah joined GGFL in 1980 as a University of Waterloo co-op student. She was named partner in 1994 and managing partner in 2008.

Personal experience with GGFL over the last 20 years extends to both my personal tax and business tax needs in Canada and the US. They work as a team and always know when another colleague’s expertise and input will best address my needs, and thus complicated matters are always well-vetted before a direction is offered.
