About LauraLaura Gilroy is BOYNECLARKE’s Director of Finance, overseeing the Finance and Accounting Team.
Originally from the Truro area, Laura came to Halifax to complete her BComm in accounting. A portion of that program required her to complete a work term, and Laura chose to complete hers with BOYNECLARKE LLP. Following a successful term, Laura was offered a part-time role with the firm until she graduated.
Now, ten years later: “I’ve just never left!” Laura explains with a laugh.
During her time with the firm Laura has worked in Process Improvement, as a Financial Analyst, Controller, and now Director. Her career path has provided her with the unique opportunity to develop a robust and total understanding of how the finance and accounting department operates at our firm.
“I like knowing answers, and I like that our larger team knows that I have them,” says Laura with a smile. “It must be the accountant in me, but I enjoy making sure things balance.”
Like most of our staff, Laura appreciates the people-first culture and family feeling that exist at BOYNECLARKE.
“The people that I work with make a huge difference [in my job satisfaction]. I’ve built some great relationships, and I have friends across our various teams,” she explains.
In her spare time, Laura enjoys being creative, spending time with her large family, and baking cakes for people (but not at month end!).
