Kenway Mack Slusarchuk Stewart LLP is proud to congratulate Damara Casper on receiving the Early Achievement Award at Saturday’s 2019 Elevate Awards Gala. The Elevate Awards Gala recognizes individuals whose career and community achievements have brought honour to the CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) profession.
Damara enjoys her work in public practice and has spent her entire career with the mid-size accounting firms of Grant Thornton LLP and Kenway Mack Slusarchuk Stewart LLP. A consummate professional who is committed to the mentorship of future CPAs, Damara has both formally and informally provided countless hours of guidance and advice to those working towards their CPA designation. This has included her role as mentor under the CPA mentorship program and through her continued involvement in numerous campus recruitment initiatives. Her passion for this profession has been her driving force: as campus recruitment lead, she has dedicated her time and energy to meet and encourage new candidates to join the CPA program.
Always one to share her knowledge, Damara has provided her finance and business expertise in volunteer roles to The Military Museums in Calgary, helping them to preserve historical information and support veterans, and to Pause4Change Rescue Foundation, an animal rescue organization. She also continues to give back to the Cochrane community through her recent role as Director with the Cochrane Foundation.
