Maura Young

Finance Manager

Toronto, ON

I feel honoured to work for social purpose organizations that prioritize changemaking in different ways.

Maura was raised in a rural Irish town with her parents and four siblings. She moved to Dublin where she completed her studies culminating in the Chartered Institute of Management Accounts designation. After living and working in the UK for 10 years with her husband Mike they made another move, this time to Toronto, Ontario covered by Treaty 13. Maura initially worked in various finance roles within the consulting sector but then decided a change was needed in her working life. She took on a finance director role in a small charity and has not looked back, now happily sharing her time over three organizations including Ashoka Canada.
