Senior Financial Advisor, Manulife Securities Incorporated

Financial Planner, Manulife Securities Insurance Inc.

"I remember when I was in grade four I bought my first Canada Savings Bond.  It was $100, and the rate of interest was 11.25%.  It came with a pamphlet about the wonders of compound interest.  Since then, I've been hooked.  The idea that you can use knowledge to make money and the idea that you can make money work for you and grow on its own fascinated me.  Some kids are interested in music and some in sports.  For me, I was interested in business and investing.

Since then, I have been fortunate to make a living out of helping the people I know with their financial situation and investing.  I have a great interest in communicating to my clients and educating the public about investing, retirement, tax and estate planning.

I have been fortunate to see growth in my business based on the good ol' fashion principal of doing a good job for people and letting word-of-mouth and referrals do the rest.  I believe very strongly in using that good fortune to give back to others and the community."
