Lana earned her bachelor of commerce (co-op) honours degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1993, and her (legacy) CMA from the Society of Management Accountants of Ontario in 1995 while working as an auditor with the federal Officer of the Auditor General of Canada in Ottawa. Since then, she has answered the call of the sweet salt air and returned to the East Coast. There, she worked for 17 years in the manufacturing industry as controller and then general manager. In 2013, she moved to the Newfoundland regulatory body for nurses (ARNNL) as director of corporate services. Lana has been active on many boards and committees and currently serves on the CPA Newfoundland regulatory advisory committee, as well as on the school council of her twins’ school. Lana is very excited to be a part of the ONE National Conference 2018 Advisory Committee.
