Florida Proulx, BBAA, CPA, CGA, is a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants Association of Alberta and a public accounting practitioner.
In addition, she's a member of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nations in northern Alberta, and happy to share in the vision of the Edmonton Aboriginal Business & Professional Association to support Aboriginal Entrepreneurship.
Florida grew up equally in Edmonton, Alberta and Fort McMurray, Alberta, and have had the benefits of having a diverse background in the practical field of accounting over the past nearly 18 years, from oil & gas at Suncor Energy, to the provincial government’s crown corporation, with AIMCO, and mostly within public accounting, where her heart has always been.
In 2014, Florida made the big decision to leave her office of employment and jump into self-employment and that’s when she hung a sign on her door. It took 6 years of hard work and dedication, but she can honestly say hard work pays off, and she doesn't regret that decision.
Florida established an office in Sherwood Park, Alberta, where she employs her bookkeeper, Vanessa, who has over 30 years experience in small business bookkeeping.
Together, they provide their clients with full service accounting solutions from cradle-to-grave, for small-to-medium sized businesses of all types, specializing in:
Since Covid-19, they've been fully operational while working from home. There's a secure drop box located outside their Sherwood Park office for clients to continue to drop off their items. Despite the upheaval to our society, Florida is happy to say the transition to working from home has been very smooth for them, mainly due to already having the technologies in place earlier.
"I’m grateful that in that past year, in early July 2019, I invested in technologies to allow myself to be fully integrated with a Virtual Private Network and Synology Network Attached Storage, which has made the transition to working remotely very efficient, and we are looking forward to getting through these truly rare times, and support our clients into their future."
