Jennie Barnard - Administrative Assistant
Born in Zimbabwe, and raised in South Africa, our family immigrated to Canada in June 2020. I attended university in South Africa and received a Bachelor of Accounting Science (1999) and completed my auditing articles with PriceWaterhouseCoopers. I passed the SAIPA board exam as a CFA (Certified Financial Accountant) before starting a 20 year career in auditing and finance. For a short period of time we were expats in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and for a few years before we moved to Wolfville, we lived on a macadamia farm with our pet pot-belled pig and two dogs.
I love admin, organizing and working with students and the move to Acadia University at the beginning of 2023 has been a fantastic experience.
