A member of the IQ Tax team since 2007, Deirdre has just recently become full owner of the business. Deirdre believes that each client deserves to be treated as an individual and she "takes the time to get to know everyone personally in order to serve better".
Deirdre obtained a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Guelph, specializing in Hotel & Food Administration. She quickly felt a greater personal satisfaction in dealing with the dollars and numbers part of the business. She has a soft spot for clients in the hospitality industry but enjoys the challenge of learning the ins and outs of all sorts of businesses. Deirdre has worked in many different areas of finance and accounting over the past 25 years. While taking time off from the work force to raise her children, Deirdre volunteered with several organizations as a treasurer, including Kindred Spirits Artisans of Paris and the Brantford Children's Chorus.
Married with 5 children (some steps), Deirdre makes her home in Brantford. She and her husband are members of the Grand River Chorus and are avid scrabble players.
