Paula Rameriz CPA, CA
The career path that lead me to parker simone was not the typical route most CA students take, but it has been a rewarding one. As a graduate of the Bachelor of Accounting and Financial Management Program (BAFM) at the University of Waterloo, I was exposed to various industries throughout my co-op terms including insurance, finance and capital markets. Following my BAFM degree, I continued my education of accounting and finance by completing the Master of Accounting Program at UW, which prepared me for the UFE and working life as a CPA, CA.
After nearly 5 years of strenuous studying, I was fortunate to spend two months travelling around the UK and Europe, which is one of my major interests. These two months were very rewarding as I was able to meet new people, be exposed to different cultures and learn about their interests and passions. This is one of the many reasons
I enjoy working at parker simone. Being a member of the parker simone team has enabled me to not only gain practical experience in a variety of public accounting settings, but has also given me the opportunity to work with many clients, from CFOs to small business owners and entrepreneurs. The life at parker simone has allowed me to fulfill both my professional and personal interests and I look forward to building long lasting relationships with my co-workers and clients.
