I started working with Vanessa in August of 2019. I was 57 at the time and was very worried about my retirement. I am single and was concerned about being able to support myself once I retired, if in fact I was ever going to be able to retire at all. I did not want to be a burden to my kids or family so thought it was time to get the assistance I needed. Best decision I ever made. Since meeting and working with Vanessa, I have paid off all of my debt with the exception of my mortgage and have increased my savings, investments and net worth not to mention my credit score . For the first time in my life I have a plan. Vanessa is such a pleasure to work with and has helped me to understand the financial world, investing and things like stashing money in a book wasn't a good financial plan. I have decided to continue working with Vanessa because she works hard for ME - she keeps me in check and accountable, but at the same time I continue to learn and grow and am able to make better financial decisions for my future. Thank you Vanessa and I look forward to continuing our work together.
I am so happy that I met Vanessa! I was reviewing my personal and business investments and learning a lot on my own about fees and investment options. I wanted to make some changes but was having a hard time finding the right fit for me in an advisor. Vanessa provided me with fundamental investment knowledge, verified the learning I had already done, and helped me make the decisions I needed to make. I am so grateful. I would recommend Vanessa to anyone, with or without investment experience. Her depth of knowledge and passion for financial management and independence is backed up by her genuine care about achieving your goals. I look forward to a continued relationship.
Vanessa has not only taught me a considerable amount in practical financial management but has given me a great deal of confidence in self-management. She has given me insight into pillars of organization that will be long withstanding our scheduled time together, and her reflections on her own growth and career management have given me insights to my personal development as well. I would recommend her for any service that she offers, and look forward to the relationship we will develop in the future!
Thank you most sincerely for all the information you have provided. I feel more knowledgeable and empowered in making smarter financial decisions. I am excited to not be paying such high fees and be able to grow my savings in a better way.
Working with Vanessa has been empowering as well as educational. I understand much more about my cash flow as well as my investments and have clear goals and conscious intentions for my money moving forward.

Working with Vanessa has been a TOTAL game changer for not just me, but our family. I've never felt so POWERFUL and in CONTROL of our finances. I neglected money for years and now I'm fired up about being in the pole position when it comes to managing our life and dreams!

I contacted Vanessa looking for help in understanding my investments. To be honest I couldn't even make sense of my statements. She was able to help me understand where my money was and break down the fees that I was paying each year.

When I heard your presentation at the Day of Fabulous in Calgary, my interest was piqued. I have done a lot of research on personal finance to help me with our family finances. I found most information did not deal with intermittent income. I'm so glad that I contacted you that day. The way your spreadsheets organize my information is very different and really helpful for clarity. The other thing I appreciate about you is how understanding and non judgemental you are, and at the same time you bring in your firm, no nonsense, no excuses persona when I argue and say but... You added practical steps to take and questions to ask. I am feeling very optimistic, and more in control. I have a clear picture of what's going on for us. This is really important to me because we are getting close to retirement. I can't thank you enough. Your education, financial experience and natural questioning mind is a unique skill set that works perfectly, and I will definitely recommend you.

"Vanessa presented on money management as part of our Elevate Your Life Zoom series. Our goal was to have Vanessa share financial best practices for young women starting in the full-time workforce or who were dealing with significant income reduction due to Covid-19. We gave Vanessa an overview of what we wanted to be covered and she had several suggestions to fill in the gaps and ensure a meaningful presentation with lots of strategic takeaways. Vanessa is great to work with, very professional, completely relatable and a real advocate for women. We will definitely be doing more work with her!"
