Bio: At age 32, Eileen Reppenhagen, a corporate controller, morphed into public practitioner. When clients, their parents, or spouses required care or died, she took it personally and developed unique tools and an approach for financial caregivers that would keep everyone out of trouble – her practice depended on it.

At age 53, Eileen Reppenhagen,  received the Celebrating Women and the Spirit of the Crane Silver Award in 2008, partly because of her advocacy work with persons with disabilities and their families regarding tax credits and the new Registered Disability Savings Plan.

By encouraging Canada Revenue Agency to improve their communications over the past few years, and informing taxpayers how and what medical expenses to claim, Eileen has significantly improved the financial position of thousands of Canadian families. She attributes her success directly to the techniques and procedures featured in her presentations and 100’s of published articles.
