Tanya Kirsch is a Chartered Accountant as well as a Chartered Financial Analyst, and has worked both as an accountant and as an investment analyst. After spending 8 years with Ernst & Young, Tanya recently moved into the academic world, lecturing in Accounting and Finance part-time at York University’s Schulich School of Business, and at Ryerson University. Tanya is originally from South Africa, and immigrated to Canada with her family 9 years ago.
