Investment Specialist and Financial Planner

“Scotiabank truly cares about the wellbeing of its employees. No one has believed in me as much as my direct manager and I am extremely grateful to have her in my life not only as a leader, but as a mentor. When the opportunity to join Scotiabank as a Financial Planner presented itself, the program was brand new and very different from other financial institutions. I worked for another bank for almost 10 years and was very comfortable there. The unknown can be scary but if you never step out of your comfort zone, you’ll never grow and always wonder what you were capable of. I didn’t want to wonder, so I leapt. I never looked back!”

Home Financing Advisor

“I never thought I would find a role as entrepreneurial, challenging, and rewarding as the one I am doing now. I have the freedom to run my own business, but with the safety of representing one of the largest and most trusted brands in Canada. As someone who joined Scotiabank having never worked at a financial institution, I have benefitted tremendously from the positivity and guidance of my manager and senior colleagues. I am grateful for that help and eleven years on, I am more than happy to pay it forward with my new colleagues.”
