Janice was born and raised in London, Ontario where she still resides today. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario with a degree in Business Administration, and a major in finance, she started her career in the financial services industry in Guelph, Ontario in 2007. Janice worked for BMO for 13 years as a Financial Planner for Investment and Retirement Planning where she spent her time preparing financial plans and developing relationships with high-net-worth clients.
In 2019, Janice was ready for a new challenge. She made the decision to move to BMO Nesbitt Burns as an Investment Advisor and she hasn’t looked back. This has allowed her to deepen her relationships with her clients and provide more in-depth advice on investments and retirement planning, tax efficiency, estate planning, and cash flow analysis. Through a disciplined approach to saving and investing, she is able to put together tailor-made financial plans to provide peace of mind for her clients, while helping them to achieve their goals and dreams.
In her spare time, Janice enjoys playing soccer and basketball, and camping with her husband and two young children.

Marilyn was born in London and, as her father’s job involved frequent transfers, spent her early childhood in Toronto, and towns in Quebec and Nova Scotia before returning to Southwestern Ontario. Marilyn attended the University of Western Ontario, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 1978. When her youngest child started school in 1987, Marilyn joined Burns Fry (a predecessor firm of BMO Nesbitt Burns) and has enjoyed working with clients ever since.

In their leisure time, Marilyn and her husband Cameron enjoy travel, walking, gardening and especially spending time with their family.
