Helen has helped her clients transform their finances & realize their dreams.

Helen, her New Brunswicker husband, & their four children spend as much time as they can at their cottage on Kahshe Lake taking part in boating, fishing & all that Muskoka has to offer. To recharge, Helen volunteers with the Rotary Club of Gravenhurst, indulges in wildlife photography & long hikes with her dog, Echo. The highlight of her life was getting an autographed guitar from her heartthrob, Keith Urban.
