“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.

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.
