Bridget began her career articling with a mid-sized accounting firm in Vancouver and spent the next 12 years as a leader in the audit and assurance practice, where she managed internal training and firm development. During this time, Bridget facilitated accounting and assurance courses for British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC) professional development programs. After leaving public practice, Bridget moved into a professional standards advisor role at CPABC, where she continued to support and assist practitioners and members through the application of professional standards, and by serving as provincial representative on various national task forces and committees. Seeing a need in the profession and, in particular, in public practice, Bridget left CPABC and co-founded what is now Clearline Consulting. For the past three years, Bridget has been assisting practitioners in British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba with technical competencies, professional development, regulatory compliance and practice management matters.
