Professional Profile:

Being an Investment Advisor allows me to use my work experience and personal skills to deal directly with our clients.   I find it rewarding to develop a meaningful relationship with individuals, but more importantly I can see the tangible result of my work and experience contribute to their success. For twenty years, I operated on the institutional side of the business as a pension consultant.  As a retail structured product specialist, I initiated and managed billions of dollars of retail product sold through the investment dealers to retail consumers like you.  Never did I see the direct benefit of my work with a person or family.  Never saw a pension plan member, never saw an individual investor.  It was all academic.  I much prefer the rewards of helping clients find solutions to meet their goals.  

Personal Profile:

We live a busy life.  My two passions are sailing and flying.  Other keen interests are fishing, tennis, squash and work.  I love what I do.  In addition, both Zoe and I are great supporters of both TIFF and the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre.

Professional Profile:

Having been a teacher in my early career helped me develop the people skills I need to bring an extremely high level of service to our clients.  My education as a mechanical engineer gives me the skills to find solutions to clients’ complex problems and to provide simple explanations for their financial questions.  I'm energized by seeing my clients become confident that their investments are creating a bright future. Building that future together is what keeps me driven to learn new things and seek new challenges.     

Personal Profile:

I'm happiest doing anything outdoors.  That includes running with our dog Merlin, tennis, and flying.  I love the challenge flying brings and the freedom of whizzing by the clouds.  My other passion is food: eating, cooking and reading recipes. Yum!  I enjoy travelling, especially back to my beautiful hometown of Vancouver to visit family and friends.  Best of all is I get to share all of these with my husband and business partner, Scott Blair.  What could be better?!

I joined the team in April of 2015. With five years’ experience as a Financial Services Representative in the Retail & Business banking division of one of Canada's big six chartered banks, I’ve developed the necessary administrative and client servicing skills to assist our clients with their financial questions. I enjoy using my knowledge of basic banking products, lending, insurance and investing to help our clients attain their financial goals.

I like to spend time learning and discovering new things. I’m almost always involved in some course or form of study. Most recently I’ve taken classes in Woodcarving & Sculpture, Hip Hop Dance and Introduction to Guitar.

Insurance Specialist, Manulife Securities Insurance Inc. 

Professional Life:

After finishing up at McGill and wrapping up my football career I worked as a proprietary trader for a small hedge fund in Montreal. I needed a change of pace, so I followed in the footsteps of other great McGillians like Mike Babcock and moved to Toronto. Before coming to Blair + Adrian Wealth Advisors I worked as a business development and marketing associate with one of the largest brokers in the country.

Personal Profile:

I am no longer a new comer to Toronto, but I still enjoy exploring the city and finding interesting restaurants and bars around the city. I am a horrible squash player and a worse golfer but I still give both the old college try, maybe one day I’ll beat Scott at either. In my down time I like to read sales books or high fantasy novels.
