Meet Us

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."


– Helen Keller 

We are Ashli and Martina, co-founders of Grow CPA. We are Chartered Professional Accountants  with over 30 years of combined experience.

We created Grow CPA because we saw that there was a gap between today's small business that is modern, fast paced and connected and today's accounting firms which haven't changed since our grandparents time.


We are on a mission to close this gap, one business at a time. 

Grow has allowed us to combine our leadership and love of working with people (yes that's right, we are accountants that like people) with our passion for accounting and finance.

It's our goal to provide you with the appropriate tools and insights to help grow your business to new levels.  

Your team gets a CPA.

A CPA that speaks your language. 

A CPA that is invested in your success.

I have always enjoyed learning about and understanding finance. From saving and investing diligently when I had my first job to later graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Carleton University.


I spent the first 8 years of my career moving quickly up the ranks from co-op student to manager at a national public accounting firm.  There, I became adept at personal and corporate taxes and led financial engagements for some of Muskoka's largest businesses.  I then transitioned to a senior leadership role at a large regional non-profit overseeing accounting for a mutli-million dollar budget along with HR, IT and corporate strategy.

My passion for accounting and finance has now led me to partner with Martina in the creation of Grow CPA.  We are so excited to apply our knowledge and experience to help businesses thrive and grow.

As a child my favourite subject was math. So it was an easy decision to pursue my Bachelor of Mathematics, with honours in Business Administration from the University of Waterloo

 I earned my accounting designation while working in Finance for a Fortune 500 company in the GTA. There, I earned several company awards, completed my Six Sigma red belt, and led a large scale cross-sector migration project to successful completion.

 I moved on from there to into Financial Controller-ship. First for a professional services firm during a period of exponential growth, and later for an established craft brewery. 

Partnering with Ashli to form Grow CPA has been a dream come true, and we love helping businesses flourish.
