Shaune studied Business Administration and Accounting in college and started doing bookkeeping when she and her husband moved to Edmonton in 1989 to purchase a franchise. This was where she had her first hands-on experience running an office, managing staff, and doing their company’s books under the tutelage of their accountant—when 24-column accounting books were “in.” She has come a long way since leaving the franchise, gaining experience running offices and doing books for small businesses in various industries. Always learning what’s new in the ever-evolving accounting and bookkeeping industry, Shaune is a Certified Professional Bookkeeper with the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (www.ipbc.ca) and is a Certified ProAdvisor with QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online.
Shaune’s passion is to help small business owners and solopreneurs keep their finances current and accurate and understand how to interpret their numbers. She believes this is the only way to pro-actively run a business, manage cash flow, and make informed business decisions so you can stay in business for the long run.
Dan joined the GuYDanS team the beginning of 2018 leaving the alarm industry where he worked for 8 years and managed teams of technicians 5 of those years. In 2013, he graduated from Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) with a Diploma in Computer Engineering Technologies.
Growing up in the Allen household, Dan was given opportunities to help Shaune from time to time with bookkeeping work and caught on quickly. He has always enjoyed numbers and now has an opportunity to work with them daily while helping small businesses keep on top of their books.
