Canada: A Super Woman Who Stays Grounded
Last Updated: March 18 2015

From March 6-19, Collins Barrow is highlighting the excellence and achievements of several women who strive towards creating value; breaking equality barriers and empowering others

International Women's Day celebrates the women who make it happen all around the world. Our women make it happen every day. Collins Barrow believes in a workplace environment that fosters the careers of Canadian women. Over the past 20 years, the accounting industry has seen a positive shift in the attitudes towards female advancement. At Collins Barrow, we already have a higher percentage of women partners than the industry norm—and growing. Meet Helen.

Helen began her career with Collins Barrow Elora eight and a half years ago and reached her goal of making partner with the firm. Specializing in providing assurance engagements, compliance and tax advice, Helen ensures clients are making informed decisions with their business and personal finances by approaching each engagement as a unique challenge-- delivering value through clarity.

Helen's commitment to creating and sharing value begins at CB Life and extends to local causes and international projects. As a Human Resources partner with the firm, she strives to create a relevant and inspiring environment for staff that transcends to exemplarily client services. Helen gives back to the community every week as a Sunday school teacher for girls in grades 6-8 at her local church and was an honoured recipient of a Paul Harris Fellow award last June for her international fundraising initiatives as a member of the Fergus-Elora Rotary Club, where she is also Treasurer.

"Although we try, we can't always be 'super woman,' but Collins Barrow fosters a working environment that provides the challenges needed to stay motivated and develop new skill sets that keep you on the clear path to driving results for our clients. Working alongside likeminded, talented people on day to day bases is a great inspiration for giving back," says Helen.  

Did you know: If Helen could speak to any great woman from history, it would be Oprah. She would ask her that as an initial TV news reporter, did she ever imagine she would end up where she is and the impact she would have on so many lives?
