After a successful career in management with New York Life and Canada Life, serving all major cities of Canada, including Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and finally Vancouver, I became a financial planner. The 25 years I have spent in management have given me a precise idea about the challenges and rewards of providing planning services to others. Over time, I have become more and more passionate about helping others achieve their financial goals and obtain the safety nets they need to handle all of life’s unexpected curveballs. Additionally, I am very involved in my community, helping young entrepreneurs through a mentorship program that gives them the tools they need to help achieve their current and longer term goals. I am also on the board of several non-profit organizations. Gaynal, my spouse of 15 years, has been a constant support, and Sam our four legged companion, well he takes care of public relations.
