My partner, Koos, and I immigrated from South Africa nearly 20 years ago and are very proud to be Canadians! He is an incredibly talented photographer. Our daughter Marisa is in academia. Her 3-year-old daughter, Annika, calls me "Ouma" and melts my heart with her big blue eyes. She loves shoes and choosing what to wear each day. Our daughter Annette has two "four-legged children," Sushi and Wasabi. Our son, Louw, works in the gaming industry and loves to debate, so our family enjoys endless cups of coffee flavored with passionate conversation.
I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, and tackling DIY projects. For me, the glass is always half full, and I love making a positive difference in the lives of others. Perhaps that why I've always volunteered in my community and with charities. I've done everything from cleaning strawberries for the local hospital's festival to raising funds for a new hospice.
I began working at age 12. Creating my own financial independence at an early age built my confidence and was motivating and liberating – I'm the captain of my ship!
It later occurred to me that others also work hard to provide for those they love while helping their communities and creating legacies for future generations. As a financial advisor, I could enable them to accomplish more by helping them build wealth.
Should you decide to work with me, my first priority will be to get to know you. Only then can I understand what's important to you and your life goals. Once I know where you are today financially and where you want to be in the future, I can create an investment strategy tailored to your unique situation and help you work toward achieving your goals. We'll then touch base regularly to ensure you remain on track through your life's journey, regardless of what the future holds.
I would like to help you build your financial future. Together we can establish an investment strategy to help you reach your goals and turn your life dreams into reality.
