I’m Daun Shears and I have been serving the beautiful cities of Fort McMurray and Edmonton for over 19 years!
I like to think that I have always excelled at owning my own business. Having the ability to bring my core values of family, hard work ethic, positivity and enthusiasm to my work, truly molds the success of my company.
I am a mother of two beautiful children (though not so little anymore), 2 fur babies (Lilly & Lacy) and a wife to an incredibly supportive husband. Fort McMurray has been home to my family and I for the last 36+ years and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Before I dove into tax preparing and bookkeeping, I was the owner and operator of the Arctic Spas here in Fort McMurray. My husband and I, along with our staff, ran the Arctic Spas here for over 13 years. This experience allowed me to truly appreciate the fundamentals of running and owning my own company. Handling the books and taxes for my own business, I understand the amount of effort it takes behind the scenes to allow for smooth operation on the front lines. Bookkeeping can support you in many different forms. Working for a Property Management firm requires a more consistent presence to tackle all the monthly expenditures including but not limited to security deposit payouts, owner revenue disbursements, condo statements, condo fees, taxes, payroll and much more.
My portfolio also consists of bookkeeping for a dental office, a small inn, personal small local businesses, etc. I have an appreciation and a passion for what I do, and given the opportunity would value the prospect of becoming an asset to your large or small business.
Thank you for taking the time to explore my website and list of Bookkeeping and Tax Preparation services. And thank you for supporting Fort McMurray’s community of local small businesses.
