Owner CEO Cornerstone Financial Services Ltd
I was born and raised on a farm north of Wembley. From a young age I played sports and worked hard alongside seven siblings – milking cows, packing hay bales and weeding a large garden. In school, organizing events was the norm. I also won two summer-long camp scholarships to Vancouver Island through Cadets of Canada.
After finishing school, I worked in the forestry industry and at age 23, before starting my own welding business in the busy oil field. Since then, I’ve never looked back. Then, in 1987, a motor vehicle accident ended my welding career.
After three years at Grande Prairie Regional College, I graduated with an accounting diploma and as part of a 3 person team from GPRC won the provincial “Best In Business” computer simulation competition. Then in the summer of 1990, I started my insurance business with what was then Mutual Life of Canada. I have over 28 years experience in the life insurance and investment business.
I have two grown children. I’m still active in sports, where I play and coach wheelchair basketball. I have also competed for Team Alberta at the National Championships in 2001, 2011 and 2012. I used to ride my bike a lot, I now spend summers golfing and camping on the farm where I grew up. Hobbies include making home made wines, gardening, music, building things and enjoying life.
