Karen loves being a partner at Thorburn Guinan. Having watched her parents manage a successful gravel and excavating business while she grew up, coupled with her keen interest in working with numbers, Karen always knew her career would take her to the financial management field.


Now, with over 20 years’ experience working in public practice and 6 years as a chartered professional accountant, Karen helps her customers make sense of their finances by building strong personal relationships, providing quality advice, and ultimately building trust, which leads to long term business and personal relationships. For Karen, it’s not just about the numbers, it’s about getting to know her clients and their families, and helping them succeed.

Karen also recognizes the need for balance and has many interests that keep her active and healthy. Her and Roger have two boys that are very busy with hockey in the winter and golf in the summer. Karen is also an avid soccer player, mountain biker and gym enthusiast, so when not active at work, in the community, or at the arena, she and can be found up in the trails in Cumberland or on the soccer field.
