The ability to solve problems, prioritize tasks, and great attention to detail make Yuliya Shevchuk an exceptional Accounting Clerk and a great addition to our Virtual Accounting Team.
Yuliya earned her diploma in Business Administration with a major in Accounting at Red River College in Winnipeg, MB. She joined Finatics earlier this fall while she works toward her Commerce degree, majoring in Accounting, from Athabasca University.
“My goal is to earn my Bachelor of Commerce and then earn my Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation,” explains Yuliya, who moved to Canada from Ukraine when she was 15. Previously, Yuliya worked a few years as an accounting clerk for a large agri-foods company and also as a bookkeeper for a local church.
“Joining Finatics as an Accounting Clerk worked out perfectly. I’m a full-time student right now and Michael could be flexible and let me work part-time.”
Yuliya is enjoying her work with Finatics: “I like what we do, working with multiple businesses. It’s a great opportunity to work with different people and industries – even different scenarios because every company is slightly different. It’s also great because I’m studying and I can apply the theoretical knowledge I learn now.”
Michael Haight, President and VCFO of Finatics Accounting Solutions, met Yuliya through LinkedIn a couple of years ago and knew she would be successful in her career.
“Luckily for us, after a couple of years working as an accounting clerk, Yuliya decided to go back to university full-time and wants to pursue her CPA designation,” explains Michael. “When I found out that she went back to school, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see if Yuliya wanted to join our team and poof she’s our newest Finatic.”
In addition to her expertise as an accounting clerk, Michael is confident Yuliya’s attitude is a great fit for Finatics clients: “Yuliya has such a lovable personality and is always smiling and wanting to help everyone succeed. These traits along with her education and experience are invaluable to us and the organizations that we work with.”
