Sandra MacPherson-Doy inherited the family talent for working with numbers, so it was only natural for her to pursue a bookkeeping career. “My dad and my auntie were both tax accountants,” says Sandra.
As the youngest of 12 kids, Sandra is no stranger to hard work and confesses that she loves to work. Throughout her career, she has held down two, sometimes three jobs at the same time. She worked as an office manager in a variety of industries. In 2000, Sandra contracted with clients to file their personal taxes, and with sole proprietors to manage their books. She still works with clients on weekends.
A happy person with a positive attitude, Sandra enjoys the team at PCS and the work in front of her. She particularly loves to help clients get their books in order. Her drive and her fortitude keep her going, no matter what life throws at her.
At home, Sandra loves to garden. She also has a talent for baking pies – both sweet and savory, which she sells through a local market. “We also have a big dog, who demands quite a bit of attention.” When spring comes and the open road calls, Sandra and her husband wheel out the motorbikes and spend quality time riding.
