Experience

Sarah was originally an elementary school teacher, working in countries such as Australia, China and South Korea. It was during this time she honed her teaching skills and the ability to break down complex topics into digestible bite-sized pieces. In Sarah's experience, consumers can start their path onto financial wellness by using the right tools and a supportive community. Through her experience learning about the banking, mortgage and credit industry, she became passionate - just like in her teaching career -  to break down complicated jargon in a way that anyone can understand. 

It's because of this passion that Sarah found herself helping both individuals and groups on financial wellness topics, speaking at events and creating workshops which helps others to build their dream life. To further her skills, Sarah decided to pursue the Accredited Financial Counselor designation in order to continue to educate consumers about the value of working hard to create a healthy financial future.

Education

Sarah earned her bachelor's degree in English literature and Education with a minor in Visual Arts at York University. She is currently pursuing the Accredited Financial Counselor designation.
