As a result, she has been part of the firm’s steady growth in the number of clients supported with high-level US and Canadian tax services.

She earned an accounting degree in her hometown of Manila in the Philippines. After she arrived in Vancouver, Vangie began honing her accounting skills with a trust company. Her extensive work experience in Vancouver also includes stints with a wide variety of organizations, ranging from a women’s clothing company to a tools manufacturer, a school, and a church. But she found her calling at SKL, where Vangie thrives on the camaraderie of the team and views clients and staff as members of her family.
