Lana was born and raised in Grande Prairie. She attended GPRC for her first year of studies and then completed her Bachelor of Management at the University of Lethbridge. A move to Peace River, AB altered plans for a few years, and it was there that her and her husband Jarrett started a family. Lana started the CA program in 2007 with a small local accounting firm in Peace River and earned her CA designation in 2008.
Lana obtained 12 years of public practice experience in Peace River with that local firm which eventually merged with MNP. She enjoyed developing relationships with clients and helping them to meet their business objectives while complying with tax obligations and regulations. Wanting to experience a new challenge she left public practice to work in industry at a pulp mill for 1 year and then for a school division for 4 years.
Recently she decided to move back to Grande Prairie to be closer to family and was happy to start as a Designated Professional with Fulcrum Group in January 2021. She is really enjoying the work environment at Fulcrum Group, with everyone working together and supporting each other.
Outside of work Lana enjoys spending time with family and friends and is looking forward to welcoming her first grandchild in early 2022. Lana loves to cook, read, watch movies, and shop! Her and her husband are missing acreage life now that they live in the city so are hoping to get back into camping again.
