In the summer of 2020, I moved to Kelowna with my fiancée after

spending 24 years in Vancouver. We decided on Kelowna since it’s closer to what we love doing and it has provided us both with amazing opportunities! When I’m not working, I am an avid outdoorsman, whether its hiking, skiing, fishing, or photography, chances are I’ll be on the trails.

My husband, daughter and I feel privileged to call Kelowna home since 1995.


I graduated from the University of Alberta School of Nursing and

practiced as a Registered Nurse for years. I worked in many specialized areas and saw first-hand the importance of having a financial strategy. In 2011 I decided to make a career change to help Clients with their financial health. That’s when I started working with Sun Life.


I am compassionate when providing Clients with their unique financial roadmap to protect them and their loved ones. I take the time to assess a Client’s unique situation and identify any gaps for their personal or business needs. From there, I help them make educated decisions and formulate a detailed plan to try to help them get to the retirement they want.


This compassion led me to enhance my knowledge beyond my life and mutual fund license. I completed my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® (CFP®) designation to offer Clients a comprehensive financial plan.
