Elena Shpita

Professional Bookkeeper

Elena (Lena) Shpita worked in accounting after earning her Bachelor of Commerce Degree from Khabarovsk State Academy in Russia in 2004. She and her husband moved to Toronto in 2007 where she received her marketing diploma from George Brown College. Lena worked for a securities firm and CDI College in Toronto before they moved west in 2013.

Also skilled in sales and customer service, Lena is happy to put her administrative, marketing, and management experience to work at PCS. “I love to brainstorm with others as we dive in to solve various challenges. Working hard is no problem for me – I like to be busy.”

Lena describes herself as a patient, attentive listener who gets along well with all kinds of people. She enjoys attending new client meetings. A quick learner, Lena is the back-up person when other team members are away. She also works as Barb’s administrator.

At home, Lena’s two young children keep her busy. She tends her apple trees and is an avid gardener. Canning what she grows or harvests from the U-pick farms is one of her pleasures. She’s not only a hockey fan, she and her family like swimming, skating, and skiing. Tropical vacations are a big draw to escape the winter weather.
