When Karla MacLennan discovered she was really good with numbers, she started helping her parents with their bookkeeping. She was only 14. Before joining Colby·Steckly as a Junior Accountant Technician, Karla ran a successful small business in Hinton, Alberta, serving as both owner and office manager.
In 2017, she earned her Administrative Professional Certificate from NorQuest College and in April 2021 was awarded her Accounting and Bookkeeping Certificate from Career City College in Kelowna.
Karla has always been inspired by learning new things. A quick learner, she combines patience and efficiency in her quest to achieve perfection. Performing a multitude of tasks energizes her. “I like knowing the answers, so I’m very driven to pursue them.”
“It makes a difference to have great mentors here at the firm,” says Karla. “Everyone is very supportive and willing to share their knowledge and experience.”
To relax, Karla enjoys reading. Her three teenagers also keep her busy. If you ask Karla for a ride in her beloved Jeep, don’t be surprised if you find yourself in an off-road adventure – with plenty of mud!
