Giselle was born in Saskatchewan, and moved west to Edmonton in 1985 where she met her husband Mike; with whom she shares two children Reg and Lindsay. They moved to Vancouver Island in 1997.
She worked in Alberta with Employment Standards and the Labour Relations Board. When she and her family chose to move to Vancouver Island, she left that position to help out a friend who was a financial planner for a few months and realized that as much as she loved working with people, working with people and numbers was even better. She started working with Parksville office of BMO Nesbitt Burns in 1999 and still loves getting up and coming to work every day.
Giselle has compleleted the courses and passed the exam for the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® (CFP) designation.
She appreciates the diversity in clients' lives and the fascinating stories and anecdotes they have to share.
Giselle enjoys reading, sewing, cooking & working with teenagers. She and her husband helped to start the Intermediate Lacrosse team in Parksville and continued working with the boys & League long after their own children were involved. She has been a member of the Parksville Quilt House Quilter’s Guild since moving to Parksville, where she produced the newsletter, publicized a show and been the Evening Meeting Chairperson.
