Natalie Russell, CHS™, CPCA

When it comes to planning for lifetime financial security, you want the best for your loved ones. It can be challenging to provide for your family while also looking to the future. I share your concerns because I know there’s a delicate balance between managing day-to-day finances and accumulating wealth.

With over a decade of experience in the financial services industry, I take great pride in my commitment to Clients. This dedication is based on how I would want my own family’s financial futures to be treated - with understanding and care. I enjoy providing peace of mind to Clients by helping them prepare for a successful financial future and protect their savings in the event of the unexpected.

Having been through many ups and downs over the years, it didn't take me long to understand that one should always prepare for life’s uncertainties. Having worked in the industry for 10 years after completing my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, I wanted to give back to my community as they supported me on my professional journey.

By committing myself to lifelong learning, I dedicated my career to sharing my knowledge with Clients. My aim is to help them achieve their goals by providing them with exceptional services.

I use a proactive approach by listening to Clients' needs, educating them, and building comprehensive strategies. In doing this, I can nurture a strong, long-lasting relationship that will help them along their financial journey.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, volunteering, and spending time with my family.

Lindsey Mills

As an Advisor Assistant, I help the team and the Clients we work with on many administrative tasks. My goal is to alleviate the workload from our Advisors and reduce stress for the Clients. Then everyone can spend more time working towards their goals.

I’m proud to work on such a great team. I want Clients to feel comfortable and confident working with our team. To play my part, I try to help Clients in the best way that I can. As a people person, I enjoy the customer service element of my job.

When I’m not working, you can find me in front of an easel working on a painting or drawing. I love working with oil paints and graphite drawings and anything crafty! In the summer, I enjoy spending time at my trailer with family and friends.

Beyond my professional endeavors, I cherish spending quality time with my husband and son, often indulging in camping adventures around Ottawa.
