Jolene Kobi, B. Comm., CPA CA (Phone ext 125)
Jolene grew up in Strome, a small town in rural Alberta, and loved it. The few years she spent in Edmonton to obtain her Bachelor of Commerce confirmed that she didn’t want to stay in the city and she was delighted to be offered a permanent position with the firm in 2003 after completing a co-op student placement. She earned her Chartered Accountant designation in 2006 and became a partner with the firm in 2008. Jolene spends her time away from the office with her husband Shelby trying to keep up with their 2 boys, Eli and Spencer. She enjoys curling, playing slo pitch, and camping with family and friends. She recently tried her hand at coaching soccer for 3 and 4 year olds, what an experience that was!
