Ambitious. Entrepreneurial. Friendly.
With a multifaceted background in academics and marketing, Viktoriya is our Manager of Digital Strategy. She is passionate about planning creative marketing strategies behind our email campaigns, social media, and website content, and offering top-notch customer support! Contrary to popular belief, she is not a bot but, in fact, a real human behind the pop-up chat box on our site!
Detail-oriented. Adaptable. Enthusiastic.
Katie focuses on financial modeling and internal financial planning & analysis (FP&A) at CFI. She has a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance and is fond of working with numbers! When she’s not working her magic in Excel, she enjoys listening to R&B music and tunes by Bruno Mars!
Visual Thinker. Storyteller. Creative
Bettsina brings our brand to life through engaging interfaces and fresh illustrations. She completed her Master of Digital Media from The Centre for Digital Media (UBC, SFU, BCIT, Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design), and a Bachelor of Visual & Media Arts from CEDIM in Mexico. In addition to receiving the Gerri Sinclair Award for Innovation in Digital Media and a Design & Innovation Award, she has surprised us with her unusual talent to write with both hands at the same time!
Engaging. Dynamic. Dedicated.
Tom is the voice behind the learning and works his magic to bring our video lectures to life! Tom’s a professional actor with over 10 years of performance experience in theatre, film, radio, and television. Aside from his talented vocal skills and perfectly mastered voice-overs, we admire his impressive beard!
Goal-oriented. Persistent. Generous.
Celso is our very own grammar police who makes sure that our articles are flawless and all content is always in order. He’s easy to work with, the same way that he’s easy to please – just give him anything with peanut butter. When he’s not busy adding missing commas, you can find him in his secret lair binge-ing on TV medical dramas or challenging opponents in FIFA online.
Ambitious. Motivated. Detail-oriented.
Susie is an intern at CFI and a fourth year Bachelor of Commerce student at UBC’s Sauder School of Business specializing in Finance and Accounting. She’s a “jill-of-trades” and is involved in the creation of marketing, web, and course content that adds value to the financial analyst training. Fun fact: she used to think that the idea of six degrees of separation sounded absurd until she discovered her high school teacher’s cousin is married to Barack Obama’s sister.
Honest. Direct. Conscientious.
Colis is a third-year BCom student at the University of British Columbia, currently completing his internship at CFI.
