Financial Advisor, Bloom Financial
CHERYL ABBOT, CPA, CGA
Cheryl Abbot, Founder and Principal of Bloom Financial Advisor, since 2014. Cheryl has decades of history working in the financial industry (since 1996), primarily in the area of tax audit and accounting. Her natural inclination to help her friends and family with financial matters has led her to pursue a career as a self-employed financial advisor. She couldn’t be happier than when she is helping her clients meet their financial goals! Her extensive experience with compliance and tax, makes sure everything is done right.
Her practice revolves around developing a solid, long-term working relationship with her clients, growing, protecting and preserving their wealth and finding tax efficiencies. She achieves this through face-to-face client meetings, easy to understand communication and prompt, professional service, from both her and her staff. She values the fact that her clients feel comfortable from the first meeting and refer their family and friends because they know they will receive the same excellent treatment and advice.
Cheryl graduated with her CGA in 2002 and became a CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) in 2015. In 2014, she left the accounting profession, achieved her Mutual Funds License and Life Insurance License (LLQP) and opened the doors of Bloom Financial Advisor.
Cheryl grew up in Langley, BC, and currently lives there with her husband and two sons. Cheryl enjoys budgeting, investing, knitting, CrossFit, watching her sons’ sports and spending time with family (not necessarily in that order). Anyone who knows Cheryl knows that her dogs come first.
