If you can imagine watching someone play—and win—five chess matches at the same time, you might get a sense of what it’s like to work with Stephanie Washbrook, CPA, CA. Organized, focussed, analytical and adaptable, she is an old hat at working in exciting and demanding environments, thanks to her days and various roles with Ernst & Young.
“As an auditor, I loved research and learning. As an accountant, I love numbers, order and logic. Mostly, I like making life easier for other people, whether that’s making sure people have the tools they need to do their jobs and feel good about it or by volunteering at my children’s school to help the community.”
As a lead of Learning & Development for Ernst & Young’s Americas Financial Services Office, Stephanie organized and led both technical and leadership training for all levels within the firm, pioneering the role for the Bahamas, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands region. Upon moving to the EY Calgary office she led the Campus Recruiting and Resource Management for the audit practice.
