As a senior manager in audit at KPMG, Sarah Boon leads teams of varying sizes, from three to 20, conducting audits of public and private companies throughout Vancouver. She also helps lead a team at home, with three young kids.

Boon is able to balance the load by working five days per week during the busy audit season of January to March, and four days in quieter times.

“I’m very focused on making sure it’s four days,” she said.
