NATASHA MCLAREN-DOERR - ACCOUNTANT
Founder at Flow CPA
Since I first embarked upon my career path, I've been all about working smart, not hard. Therefore, I assist my clients in finding innovative solutions that will lighten their growing workload, not add more to it. Moreover, I help my clients steer their efforts in the right direction, so their businesses can thrive without sacrificing their personal fulfillment.
With nearly two decades of in-depth experience, I've been imparted with an array of opportunities, including working in public practices at national and mid-size CPA firms, local small businesses, and a top 10 Canadian University. In addition to my hands-on experience, I am a CPA and CGA, granting me an optimal foundation in accounting and taxes, as well as the necessary tools to help clients not only meet their goals, but to exceed them.
JULIA MOLINA - HBA COMMUNICATIONS
Founder Market Dixit Studio
A brand starts as the concept idea of a business, but quickly becomes an entity with identifiable psychological, communicational and cultural aspects. Without all these aspects a brand is an empty pretty logo.
My aim is to educate my clients to make smart choices at the beginning of the branding process, by guiding them to think strategically, and equally responsibly, about the main aspects of it and its cultural impact in the society it operates.
I earned my english BA (Honours) in Communications, from McMaster University, in 2017. But my curious nature has taken me to earn more diplomas in Graphic Design, Journalism, Fashion Design and Digital Marketing along the last two decades.
