Janine Paterson, CPA, CA
~Janine retired in 2017 and we wish her all the best in her new adventures!~
Based on a desire to learn more about business, I decided to pursue a CA designation and started working at Avail CPA in 1991. I love my job because I get to help clients and team members solve problems. I don’t love tax season, but after 20+ years, you get used to it and April 30th comes along every year.
I am a partner in the Taber office and have enjoyed being part of an office that has grown substantially since opening in 1994. I am proud to be part of firm that has great values. We truly care about our clients, quality of life for team members, and we get to have fun at work.
If I Could Live Anywhere
I would live exactly where I am. We have a great place in the country. I love my house, my yard and the peacefulness of living out of town.
My Favorite Time of Year
Spring, because I get to work in the yard and engage in what I like to call “Dirt Therapy” .
My Definition of a Great Weekend
A nice sunny spring day with no bugs, no wind (yes, it does happen from time to time) and a trip to the greenhouse to buy about a 100 plants. Then spend all weekend figuring out where to put them with possibly another trip to the greenhouse. This would be followed by a nice supper with my family (which would be take- out that they bring from town, because I really hate to cook)!
My Favorite Quote
Be motivated to do what it takes to have what you want.
