“A goal without a plan is just a wish”

As a Professional Wealth Advisor planning is the foundation for Wealth Health. Marie uses a holistic approach (incorporating life goals, tax, cash flow, education, insurance, banking, retirement/estate planning, and philanthropy) and coaches her clients towards achieving their goals with detailed, obtainable Next Steps so that they can organize their financial house.

“I feel that the most important goal is to have a life that is filled with purpose” says Marie and, to that end, she has found some fun and interesting ways to give back to her community.

Marie was a recipient of a music bursary, and although she did not pursue a career in music, the ARTS sector is where her philanthropy is focused. As a panelist at the 2020 CAGP International Women’s day, Marie spoke about the importance of understanding that achieving wealth is not a purpose or a destination but a tool to help enrich your life, your community and loved ones.
An active member in her community, Marie volunteers her time advocating for financial literacy and supports many more initiatives that helps recognize achievement and advancement for the Arts.
