about Nenita

Managing financial transactions and ensuring our firm’s smooth operation are crucial tasks for me as Forte Workplace Law’s Bookkeeper. Having graduated from Divine Word University in the Philippines with a Bachelor of Science in Commerce, I bring a strong educational foundation to my position.

As a financial manager for Security Bank Corporation for ten years prior to joining Forte Workplace Law, I gained valuable experience in branch banking. The caregiving field, however, is my true passion, and I have dedicated much of my career to it.

My bachelor’s degree is complemented by a Health Care Assistant Certificate from Sprott Shaw College in Surrey, BC. My diverse educational background gives me a distinct perspective on my role as Forte Workplace Law’s Bookkeeper.

My volunteer work with the One Filipino Cooperative (Fil-Coop) is one way I give back to the Filipino community in British Columbia. My volunteer work as a QB bookkeeper began in 2018, and by 2021, I had been appointed to the Board of Directors and chairman of the Finance Committee. By serving in these roles, I can contribute to my community and use my financial expertise for the greater good.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with my daughters and exploring the outdoors through hiking. These activities provide balance in my life and allow me to recharge and rejuvenate.
