My family has an impressive track record of careers in helping others. My father is a police officer, my mother worked in emergency services, my brother is a firefighter/paramedic, and my sister-in-law is a police officer. With this backdrop, it’s not surprising that from a very young age, a passion to care for others has been instilled in me.
For me, financial planning is my avenue to make a difference in the lives of others. In my short time at CCM, I’ve developed genuine relationships of mutual respect that go well behind the topics of finances and investments. It’s an honor to engage with clients about their life goals and personal aspirations, and I’ve learned that there is no greater feeling than earning a client’s trust and giving them peace of mind that their financial matters are in the best hands possible.
