Katie Gunther
Ashern Manager
katie.gunther@talbotcpa.ca
Some people say Katie Gunther looks like Molly Ringwald (in her 80’s prime), we say she was one of the best things that’s ever happened to T&A. Her love of life, determination and eagerness to learn has benefitted the firm and clients extremely well. Katie joined the Ashern office in August 2015, bringing with her over eight years experience in professional bookkeeping. Currently, she is working towards her Accounting Certificate through Athabasca University. Happiest in the outdoors, you can find her hiking, camping, helping on her parents’ cattle farm, running with her husband Curtis or building snow forts with her three sons Logan, Warrick and Gerard. Katie is a co-ordinator for the Steep Rock Swim Program as well as volunteers at many community events and teaches Sunday School at Peace Lutheran Church.

There have been some key moments that have contributed to T&A’s sought-after culture known for its moral character, wit and the ability to carry out accounting excellence with compassion and results. One of those moments was when one Julien Grenier landed on the firm’s doorstep in 2008. He essentially was (and is) the poster child for the firm’s creed. Passionate about getting the most out of life and helping others do the same, Julien is determined to see T&A become a nationwide firm. Whether its playing softball or volleyball, or sailing Gore Bay in Ontario with his wife and dogs, Julien is the outdoorsman’s outdoorsman – always seeking the next opportunity to head out to the cabin to breathe in fresh air, perspective and possibility.

Montana Jones
Director of First Impressions (Ashern)
montana.jones@talbotcpa.ca
Since Montana Jones started as Director of First Impressions with T&A’s Ashern office, we’ve had the problem of finding a room big enough to contain her fun-loving charm. She brought with her a certificate in Business Administration and a healthy appetite for adventure. When she’s not taking care of her team and clients, you’ll find Montana camping, driving in the mud with her Dad’s 4 X 4 or striking up conversations with anyone and everyone. Montana hopes to contribute to the future growth and flourishment of her community. She admires her Mom and sister for their determination in reaching their personal goals.

Tyler Williment
tyler.williment@talbotcpa.ca
Dedicated to whatever he puts his mind to, Tyler is a self-starter who begins each 7 am morning with toast and Nutella. While he enjoys watching a great deal of sports, his personal favorite being hockey, he does believe soccer is ‘criminally underrated’ and particularly enjoys the lack of commercials and the great fan culture around the sport. Between attending the University of Manitoba and previous summer retail jobs, he focused his professional studies in Economics. His personal studies turned toward teaching himself Japanese and his biggest regret is not speaking the language nearly enough. He cites the process of learning like ‘reading a book on how to build a log cabin from the ground up before ever picking up a hammer’. In his free time, he enjoys watching YouTube and playing video games on PC and Nintendo. A fan of the Mega Man Battle Network games on GBA, he enjoys all sorts of games depending on his mood. One day he wants to go on vacation to another country that doesn’t primarily speak English, with his top pick being a vacation to Japan. He most admires his mom for being one of the hardest working people he knows.
