My introduction to the Financial Industry came when we closed our business after almost 10 years. The financial stress I was under had negatively impacted my mental and physical health, and I reached out for help. It was quite an eye-opener, and I became obsessed with learning about money management. That's when I decided to become a Financial Advisor.

I have worked in the financial industry for over 30 years, and I am passionate about helping Canadian’s achieve financial freedom!

I have worked in the financial industry as a Certified Financial Planner for 22 years, and I am dedicated to helping Canadians achieve their financial goals.

I’ve been in the financial industry since 2015 as a financial advisor. What I like the most is to create a financial structure for people and make sure every aspect of their finances is covered, in a way that is simple to apply and manage. I make sure that my clients feel comfortable and invested in their work because constant efforts give the most rewards. The strategies that I teach also allow me to grow my own net worth and manage my own portfolio in my journey towards financial independence.

I have worked in the financial industry for 15 years, and I am passionate about the financial wellness of Canadians!
Throughout my career I have gained experience in roles related to financial planning, coaching, education and leadership.

Jacqueline is excited to bring her two passions, personal finance and education together in her role with the Associations & Corporations Division. Jacqueline’s commitment is to provide top level support with our corporate partners to ensure their integration with Enriched Academy is a success.

Jordan’s journey and passion for financial education began with the birth of his first son. Realizing that financial freedom begins with awareness that it is possible is his driver for working with Corporations, Associations and Benefit Providers to integrate Financial Wellness into their Employee Wellness, Benefits and EAP programs.

Growing up as an immigrant from a single parent family – I knew that we did not have much. The script I followed was “Money is for survival”.

After completing 2 degrees, I was $30,000 in debt. With an entry level position, dedication, commitment, and a plan - I paid the debt off in 2 years.

Sydney Desjarlais

These courses were very educational and all of them opened my eyes up to a whole new world of investing and saving.

Kimme Myles

I learned how to look at various investment vehicles and decide what works best for me rather than trust yet another “investment advisor” who placed their own interests before mine.

Scott Kells

Prior to taking the course I was giving my money to a financial advisor and trusting they knew what they were doing... I quickly realized how little I knew.

Ann Debono

I entered coaching with Alanna at Enriched Academy because I wanted to increase my financial awareness. Although, I have been investing in my RRSPs for many years, I knew that I wasn't paying enough attention to those investments, particularly how the high fees I had been paying for an actively managed portfolio had affected my bottom line. Through my sessions with Alanna, I had a great conversation with my financial planner where we made the switch over to ETFs, resulting in a tremendous savings of $2039 in fees in less than one year. I then researched investing in Wealth simple ETFs and am happy to report that my portfolio has earned over 9% return in the past 18 months, while I have paid very low fees. Along with investing, I also became more knowledgeable about our family spending habits, credit card usage, and how to leverage our existing HE LOC to make it work for us. I truly appreciate all of our sessions and will continue to use Alanna's advice regularly.

The Enriched Academy course was very interesting and engaging, it taught me many ways to better manage my money in an enjoyable fashion. Some of the things it taught me are how to invest my money and some good options for what to invest in. I learned that you could make money by renting out houses which, before the course.
