My name is Ainslie and I am a Senior Associate in Tax in the Vancouver office. I graduated from the University of Alberta with a BA (in Art History!) in 2006, and then completed a Diploma of Accounting at UBC before starting in the Tax CA program at PwC in 2008.
At PwC, I have had the chance to work with ton of different clients, from huge multinational corporations to small, owner-operated businesses. One of my clients, a fashion retailer, was so small that its owner was not only the company’s sole employee, but she also designed and modeled all of the clothes!
After passing the UFE in 2010, I chose to focus on International Tax as my area of specialty. In this group, I get to work with clients in a wide range of different industries, helping them to resolve their cross-border tax issues, and learning a lot about their business objectives. I love that my role is different with each new project – I never get bored – and I get to feel like I’m actually helping my clients.
I’ve also met some of my best friends at PwC - ski trips, softball games, countless fundraisers and social events, and, well – work! – have all provided great opportunities to meet so many intelligent, interesting and fantastic people!
I want to give you an idea of some of the great experiences you can expect from your time at PwC, so please feel free to post questions and comments – look forward to hearing from you!
