Kyla is passionate about serving the small businesses, families and not for profits in our community by keeping their books in order and helping them understand their numbers.

With 15 years of experience in a variety of accounting roles, she started Aspire in 2019 to offer her clients a zero-intimidation environment with flexible scheduling and a family-friendly approach. When Kyla became a mom in 2015, she started seeking a better work-life balance and a more technology-forward approach for herself and for her clients. That drive led her to open Aspire.

Kyla was raised in rural northern B.C. and attended the University of Alberta where she earned degrees in environmental science and commerce. Kyla’s first professional position was a unique role combining her knowledge of science and business as a Project Accountant at a prominent Vancouver environmental consulting firm. Kyla went on to pursue her Chartered Accountant designation, completing her articles with KPMG in 2009, and has worked in both public practice accounting firms and in industry.

Kyla also teaches at College of the Rockies and The Mountain Hub and volunteers as the treasurer of the Columbia Valley Community Foundation and CPA Canada Financial Literacy volunteer.

As avid campers, hikers, mountain bikers, and skiers, Kyla and her family can often be found exploring this beautiful valley we call home.
