About Kristine

I am a passionate feminist, and I believe that a key pillar of gender diversity lies in the realm of money and the power it holds. I want to revolutionize the conversation around women and wealth, by removing the stigma that women shouldn't talk about money, and by helping women to understand what they can afford, to help them understand that they will be okay financially. With the end goal of getting them to invest their money earlier, because time is the most powerful factor when it come to investing.

I have international experience working in the engineering, capital markets and wealth management industries. Within capital markets I have worked in equity (equity research), debt (fixed income, rates, repo) and funding positions in both Canada and the UK.

I represented Western Canada at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships in the Senior Pairs category, and I'm also a member of Mensa.
