We are pleased to announce that Hanan Martin will become our new Accounting Technician for Grande Prairie and District CatholicSchools.

A self-motivated individual, Hanan is a pro-active professional who constantly looks to refine her skills. In 2009, she attended Grande Prairie Regional College and SAIT to complete her Business Admin Diploma (Major in Accounting). She received her Diploma in 2015, and was hired the same year by MNP LLP: Accounting, as their Accounting Technician. During the past two years at MNP she learned by: preparing corporate financial statements, tax returns, reconcile GST and payroll accounts, file GST, preparing T4's and T5's and personal tax returns.

She was inspired by her father (who is a CPA) to pursue a career inside the accounting field. For her, it’s the challenge and constant journey of self-improvement which drives her to pursue her goals. Hanan is married to David and they have two dogs named King (Labrador) and Bella (German Sheppard). In her free time, she loves travelling overseas to India and China and is excited about her new position at the Catholic Education Centre.

“It’s awesome, everyone here has been so welcoming and friendly. I’m excited to get started,” said Hanan Martin. “I chose this job for the new environment and because, I was interested in seeing how different a school board is, compared to an oil field company’s finance system.”

“We are delighted to have Hanan on as our new hire. She has tons of enthusiasm and is a go-getter,” Superintendent of Schools, Karl Germann. “We are truly blessed to have her in our midst and we look forward to an exciting 2018.” We welcome Hanan Martin to the GPCSD CEC team and look forward to her taking on the role of Accounting Technician.
