Sheila Hammer CPA, CA

Accountant, Canadian Services

Hi, I’m Sheila. I’m responsible for delivering best-in-class bookkeeping to Canadians across our country. When you’re working with us, you’ll find me performing and overseeing bookkeeping services for all our clients.

I spent a decade growing a local retail business and developed an in-depth understanding of the obstacles and opportunities of business ownership. Being an entrepreneur can be time-consuming and stressful, but it’s also a fun journey that never gets boring.

A previous small business owner myself, I take pride in delivering outstanding service to you and every client who needs our help to breathe easy. To ensure your bookkeeping and business issues are handled correctly, I pay meticulous attention to detail and quality, and keep you apprised of everything you need to know to make strong business decisions.

Kim Busse

Accounting Technician

Hi, I’m Kim. I joined Platinum on a full-time basis in 2023, but I’d been working with the team as a subcontractor for some time before that. As an entrepreneur myself, I understand the importance of best-in-class bookkeeping and am committed to helping my clients reach new levels of success.

With a business administration diploma, I’ve worked for various organizations in a range of capacities and co-owned a construction company for many years. In 2018, I decided to start my own bookkeeping firm and eventually started working part-time for Platinum. When the full-time opportunity arose, I jumped on it. I like that the Platinum team uses the latest technology in bookkeeping, and the opportunity to collaborate with these great people really excited me.

I understand that you’re passionate about what you do, which means you don’t always have the time to keep up to date on your finances. I look forward to ensuring your monthly bookkeeping is on track so you always know how your business is doing and can make strong decisions.

Amanda Laurans


Hi, I’m Amanda. I joined Platinum on a part-time basis in 2023, and I’ve been a bookkeeper since 2017. I love everything about bookkeeping, from organizing clients’ receipts to the satisfaction of reconciliation and everything in between.

After almost 20 years of working 10-hour days as a production accountant in oil and gas, I needed to make a change so I could spend time with my kids. I like that Platinum is a small company because my contributions are appreciated and I have a team that can help me ensure clients receive the highest quality service.

I take an open, proactive approach with clients, and I care about each and every person and company I work with. My clients value the advice I provide as we work together to make sure they have the information they need to succeed.
