Charla Smith



After more than a decade working in insolvency, Charla founded Charla Smith & Company with a view to providing individuals with a highly personalized experience where they could work closely with a small team of experienced professionals to address their debt.

Hailing from a small Saskatchewan town, Charla moved to Calgary for college, married a native Calgarian, and never left. After starting her career in oil and gas, she soon shifted her career route to better reflect her desire to help people.

When Charla isn’t helping people deal with their debt, she enjoys being active and playing team sports - on pretty much any team that will have her. She also serves as President of the Alberta Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Professionals and is on the board of the Western Canada Chapter of the International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation, and the Entrepreneurial CPAs of Calgary. She also volunteers as a mentor for CPA, and can usually be found coaching her kids’ sports teams.
