Born and raised on Vancouver Island, I’ve worked in the financial sector since 2005. I have been providing financial advice since 2007 with a specialization in financial planning starting in 2011. I’ve worked with not for profit organizations such as Rainbow Refugee, Positive Living Society, North Island Pride Society, and Junior Achievers. I have worked extensively with the Lore Krill housing Coop, as a board member and treasurer including specific projects regarding funding irregularities with Homes BC (BC Housing), and BC Coop Federation. I take great pride in the work I did with Lore Krill as I was able to utilize my professional skill set to create a tangible difference in the future of the Co-ops members. My spouse and I moved to Campbell River in the spring of 2017 in an effort to realize a more favorable work-life balance. Since our relocation I’ve been seeking a space to utilize my skill set to give back to my community. Personally when I’m not at work I spend time with the family dog, my spouse and the restoration a ’63 Land Rover.
