Shauna L. Wust
BBA, CPA, CA
I was born and raised in Abbotsford, BC and continue to make it my family’s home. I credit my youth sports coach — who was a Chartered Accountant, thank you, Dunc! — for introducing me to the wonderful world of accounting in 1996 and I promptly changed my post-secondary course of study from human resources to accounting.
I obtained my Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of the Fraser Valley in 2003 and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2006. I have extensive public practice experience with both small local firms and larger national ones. After obtaining my professional designation, I left public practice to work in various industry sectors including mining, real estate and education. However, I most enjoy working with owner-managed small businesses in a wide range of industries and I joined LA Larson & Associates in 2010.
In my free time, I enjoy live music performances, reading biographies and true crime, staying active, taking Rosie for walks and floatation therapy. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, exploring both local points of interest and other travel destinations. A trip to Iceland is on my bucket list!
Aman K. Kalair
I obtained my Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of the Fraser Valley. Currently I am in the CPA program and working towards my designation. I was born and raised in Mission, BC therefore the Valley is where I belong. I have extensive customer service experience from restaurant to the retail industry. Having explored the service industry and public practice with many different opportunities during my studies, I have found public practice to be my place. I joined L.A. Larson & Associates as it is a small firm with big opportunities and always room to learn more. In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with friends and family. Traveling to different destinations is on my bucket list as my next venture in life.
My name is Rosie Petals and I love my job! I was born in Richmond, BC in 2014 and relocated to Abbotsford, BC shortly afterwards. I love yogurt, cheese and chicken – however I’m allergic to poultry so please don’t give me any, no matter how much I beg! I also enjoy long walks around the lake and keeping physically fit.
I previously held the role of studio model and client greeter at Studio One Groomers in Tsawwassen, BC. I entered the wonderful world of accounting in late 2014. My role of Special Advisor with L.A. Larson & Associates Ltd. includes the following duties:
- Daily attendance at the office
- Play hide and seek with Auntie Laurie (my boss)
- Play toys with Auntie Laurie
- Sneak into garbage when possible
- Sneak coffee and any other food and drink items whenever possible
- Receive and hide treats all over the office for later consumption
- Take naps and potty walks as required
- Greet clients and sit on their lap to calm their nerves and relieve anxiety
- Love everyone
I look forward to meeting with you and helping to achieve your business goals. Please don’t forget to rub my belly!
