Janet has discovered and thankfully so, that being a mother never ends. Instead it changes; from staying up late waiting for them to get home safely to a family night out cheering on the Winnipeg Jets; from a dinner on the go to discovering new restaurants; from driving a car full of rambunctious boys to hockey practice to doing a yoga class after work.
For Janet, the most rewarding part of being a financial advisor is helping her clients identify their financial priorities that lead to decisions so they can reach their goals. The plan is set in motion and then life happens and situations change and the plan needs to be updated. That's when the relationship strengthens - working together!
Janet is a lifelong student and is currently studying to complete her CFP. She sits on the board of a local non-profit organization helping children and is involved in fundraising to support mental health related causes.
Taylor has spent the past several years in Toronto where she completed her BCOMM at Ryerson University and worked at a tech startup in sales management. Now back in Winnipeg for a time, she has immersed herself in the role of financial service administrator as she completes her studies to become a licensed advisor. She has played a key role in the transition to Union North and is passionate about building new business practices that will enhance the client experience.
Taylor brings this same passion to a spin class, organizing Sunday family dinners and playing a “friendly” game of cribbage. As someone who enjoys learning, Taylor seeks out podcasts and books related to natural health and wellness, travel and cooking - just to name a few. She recently spent time in Europe (pre-pandemic) traveling with friends and especially enjoyed the culture and food in Copenhagen, Berlin and Barcelona. Family and community are both very important to Taylor so she makes sure to carve out time in the week to see her Oma and volunteer with a local non-profit organization.
Taylor is excited to join her mom in the business of financial planning and is looking forward to helping each client build and achieve their financial goals.
