Raised in Nanaimo, Aletha is a proud islander, and after moving to Toronto and the United States in her early twenties, she is proud to be back home on Vancouver Island, where she plans to stay for good.
Aletha enrolled at Vancouver Island University in September 2014. During her time at VIU, she volunteered at Big Brothers Big Sisters Vancouver Island, worked as a Peer Support Leader and Mentor, and was a CPA campus ambassador. She was heavily involved in the VIU Accounting Students Association and held the role of President for the 2018/2019 academic year. She graduated in spring 2019 with a Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in Accounting.
Aletha worked as a bookkeeper for a commercial construction company throughout her undergrad and spent two summers as an intern working in commercial banking. She joined Johnston, Johnston & Associates Ltd. in January 2019. Aletha is currently enrolled in the CPA Professional Education Program.
In her free time, Aletha can be found hiking trails all over Vancouver Island, checking out farmers markets, lurking around used bookstores, going to hot yoga, and convincing her friends to go on trips around Vancouver Island.
