Chris began her career as a computer trainer in the head office of a large Real Estate company in Toronto. It was during this position that Chris realized her passion and enjoyment of teaching adult learners. Chris then went on to computerize the accounting records of the family business on Accpac® Plus® and during her career Chris became a Sage Accpac® Certified Consultant, training various types of businesses by offering one-on-one training.

When the college moved from teaching Accpac Plus to Accpac for Windows®, Chris created the textbooks that were used in the Accpac for Windows® courses. Subsequently, her textbooks were adopted by Addison Wesley (now Pearson Education Canada) and are updated regularly by Chris as Sage Software releases new educational versions to schools across Canada. Her current Sage Accpac 500 ERP version 5.6 textbook can be found at Pearson Education Canada by clicking here and is taught at various Colleges across Canada.

Chris agreed to become a co-author of Pearson Education Canada’s QuickBooks textbook and update the textbook from version 2005 to 2010. Chris has subsequently updated this textbook to versions 2011 and 2012. As of release 2012, Chris is the only author of this textbook and she will continue to update the textbook as Intuit releases new educational versions to schools across Canada. The current textbook, Using QuickBooks Premier 2012 for Windows, can be found at Pearson Education Canada by clicking here and is taught at various Colleges across Canada.

(now Sage) for two years where she travelled across North America teaching Sage Accpac ERP courses as well as teaching these classes online. In this position she was also responsible for staying current on the software in order to update course material. Chris then held the position of Manager of Educational Sales for Simply Accounting at Sage where her expertise of the software and knowledge of education allowed her to effectively communicate with and teach educators. Her entrepreneurial spirit and knowledge of course design and training are the driving forces behind OnPoint Software Training Solutions Inc, offering high quality live, online and e-learning QuickBooks training courses.
