Originally from Gaspésie Marie-Hélène Whitty studied administrative sciences at the Cégep de la Gasspésie et des Îles and later obtained her Bachelor of Business Administration from Laval University. She then spent many years working in a variety of accounting positions in Quebec and in 1999, she was Certified General Accounting (CGA) accredited. That same year she made the move to New Brunswick and opened her own accounting business in 2000. Since then, she has been working full-time in this capacity.

Marie-Hélène’s office is situated in Charlo. She was motivated to be an entrepreneur so she could make hr own decisions and run her company based on her own personal values.

Marie-Hélène’s business is unique because she provides clients with a personalized and flexible approach. She feels that the best advice she received is to learn how to say no, be aware of your strengths and weaknesses and also to ensure that you have a work-life balance.

Marie-Hélène received financial training with Ron Robichaud, hosted and organized by the NB Association of CBDCs. This training helped her business and she found the tools and advice he provided were very useful and applicable to her trade.

"I would like to thank you for picking Ben's Clothing for the retail consulting makeover.  I very much enjoyed talking to Barbara.  She has wonderful insites on what to do to refresh my store.  I was extremly excited of the ideas put together thats in my budget for now and also in the near future.
The 1st part of the seminar, had opened my eyes to the reality of my challenges and concerns, statistics, operating cost and marketing which is a huge part that can not be ignored. It's a must to have a list of issues to know it and control it.  This is a large part of my battles that I face but placed them in the back burner. 
When Barbara came into my store I wasn't sure what to expect because in the seminar she was leaning towards makeovers for a new store or toronto style store.  I had no idea that a little bit of paint in a different color will bring out what I want to promote.  She had alot of new ideas that are in the budget and I'm going to make it happen!
Thank you again for filling me in with the seminars that are offered.  I'm always willing to get informed and always moving forward."
