Being homeschooled after her family emigrated from Amsterdam to Cranbrook in 2003 allowed Jaime Dekkers to graduate high school at 15. She achieved her Advanced Accounting certificate through Athabasca University while working full-time at Adams Wooley and then at Cranbrook Bookkeeping. On May 1, at the ripe age of 21,  Dekkers bought the latter company. “I love being a business owner,” she said. “I love the variety and flexibility and client interaction. My goal is to grow the company as big as it can get.” Dekkers presently runs her business from her home office at 612 - 17th Avenue South.
