Brandi Burbank, CPA, CA
Manager, Fort Macleod
I started with Avail CPA in Taber in 2009, and eventually made the move back west to Fort Macleod in 2016. It’s been great to return to my hometown where I grew up, to put down some roots and see my little family continue on in the farming way of life. My husband and I operate a goat farm west of town – if you are looking to add entertainment value to your farming operation, goats are definitely a good choice! My 4 children attend school in Fort Macleod, and we are definitely enjoying all that small town life has to offer. My Ag roots run deep, and I am loving the opportunities that I have every day to help producers engage their love of Agriculture and combine it with business strategies to help them succeed.
Cats or Dogs?
My family loves animals, no one more than me. We have 4 rescue dogs - 2 chihuahuas and 2 Chi-poms, 2 cats and a fish named Wayne. Combine that with the four kids and we have a house full, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Country or Rock
I’m a little bit country AND a little bit Rock-and-roll. Why choose when you can have both?
My Favorite Thing
A good book. A riveting story can draw you in, transport you to another time and place, connect you to another’s struggles and triumphs, and engage your imagination. It’s amazing what humans can create with only a writing utensil and some ingenuity. Equally as amazing is what a reader can glean from those pages. William Styron once said, “A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.” I plan to live as many lives as I can.
