Michael Kurjata returned to Dawson Creek after a 32 year absence in 2014. He resided in Edmonton and raised a small family there. He decided he needed a change and felt that private practice would provide a good challenge and the opportunity to join Schilds Kurjata Kelly CPA presented itself. Since then, the firm has morphed to becoming SKK Chartered Professional Accountants. He has been a partner at SKK Chartered Professional Accountants since 2018. Michael, and his wife Nadia (a local artist), are proud to call Dawson Creek home.
