Directly after completing my university studies, I entered the financial services industry in 1998. Early on in my career, it was apparent I had a passion for helping families plan for their future well-being. I have a deep-seeded desire to help others succeed. I genuinely enjoy getting to know each client on an individual level, understanding their dreams and goals, so I can craft meaningful, custom wealth plans to help them achieve their aspirations for the future. As a Senior Investment Advisor at Ainslie & Burrows Private Wealth Management Group at TD Wealth Private Investment Advice, I can provide the full-service opportunities my clients deserve.
I have been with TD for over 23 years. Advising high net worth clients on their investments within a well-developed plan is my specialty and has been my focus for the last 18 years. Each client is unique, which makes every day different. I love that aspect of my job; it keeps it interesting and personal. I am truly grateful for the connections and relationships I've made throughout my career thus far and appreciate our clients' trust in our process and advice.

Family & communityOn the personal side, I was born in England but moved to Canada at an early age. I have lived in the Niagara Region ever since. I am so grateful for my parents and my upbringing. I watched them work extremely hard and persevere through many challenges to keep a roof over our heads. My strong family values and work ethic were inherited from them. I am incredibly blessed to have married my best friend, and we now have a beautiful family of our own. We have four active children, 2 boys and 2 girls that bring us a tremendous amount of joy. Our children are involved in basketball, soccer, volleyball and golf. Being able to watch them grow has been priceless.
I am involved in the community in many ways, with most of the time spent coaching soccer and sponsoring youth sports. Providing sponsorship to ease the financial burden of today's sports on families is something I feel is very important in creating a culture of unity and belief. I recently made the change to coaching a girls soccer team in Niagara that participates in the Ontario Player Development League – and I am enjoying every minute.
