Meet Our Team
Janine: I love what I do! I enjoy the everyday challenges that the markets present and the diversity of clients I have the pleasure of working with. I enjoy developing unique solutions and plans that build wealth and financial security for investors to suit their individual needs. Clear communication, reflecting a sound vision of goals, objectives and risk tolerance is a must for investors and advisors. I strive to ensure clients are comfortable with a portfolio strategy that successfully achieves their financial goals, while confident in my stewardship of their financial well-being. My goal is to set the bar high for our team, not only by providing an outstanding level of professionalism, but to always exceed our client's expectations. After more than 20 years, I am proud of our reputation for integrity and excellence in our industry.
Having lived in the Comox Valley since a teenager, there is not a day that goes by that I take this amazing community for granted. I enjoy adventure travel, it is invigorating and has presented me with some amazing opportunities, but I absolutely love coming home. With seven grandchildren, I appreciate their many reminders of the beauty and importance of the “little things.” My family is my guiding light, and I feel blessed to have such wonderful people beside me.
Kevin: I am a “people person,” and an aspect of my career I thoroughly appreciate and enjoy is the interaction with clients and associates. I understand that to build strong client relationships, a sound foundation of communication and trust is invaluable. I pride myself in being a lifelong learner. Focusing on well-diversified portfolios and proven investment strategies; creating an asset mix that reflects clear goals and understanding risk tolerance and performance expectations are key to successful investing. Learning from the successes of others before me, by being disciplined to ignore the “noise” and invest in high-quality companies with solid balance sheets and stellar management teams, is key to investment success and clients attaining their investment management goals they have entrusted to me.
Among the many life lessons our three young boys have taught me, importantly a good nights’ sleep should not be taken for granted. I sleep well at night because our three young boys keep us running! I’m grateful to have grown up on a quiet beach in the Comox Valley with a loving family. I’m lucky to have had great mentors and teachers over the years. They have taught me valuable lessons about life and business: be innovative, have a vision and build sound relationships with people. I enjoy giving back to the community that gives my family so much in return.
Terina: My years of industry experience and an ongoing desire to be the best that I can be, are attributes I bring to our team at Odlum Brown. The many regulatory, procedural and technological changes over the years have been a welcomed challenge, having made my career all the more exciting. I thrive at working within a team truly committed to unwavering exemplary service to our clients. I am a bit of an organizational “geek” and enjoy creating efficient processes, while leading the administrative side of our team. Entering the financial industry in 1995, I have witnessed many cycles in the marketplace and the corresponding impact on investors. I enjoy client requests and queries, which have helped me build a fluent knowledge base of the many aspects of the investment industry. I respect our clients' confidence in us and relay information concisely and clearly, leaving them feeling well looked after while providing me with a sense of pride in what I do.
My role in our team is to assist Janine in the administration and well-being of our clients. When not at work, you can find me chasing (or being chased by) my three kids, coaching basketball, mountain biking, hiking or just hanging out with my husband and family, enjoying this great place we call home.
Drew: This is where I want to be! Every Bachelor of Commerce honours grad’s dream is to be part of a dynamic investment management team. Well, that’s mine, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about my role within our team. Having advanced technical skills, a comprehensive understanding of the academics of the financial industry and a sincere passion for doing my best for clients, are the attributes I bring to our team. I enjoy a driven desire to expand and grow my knowledge through additional courses and mentoring. Working closely with Terina, I help clients with many administrative tasks and queries, while aiding Janine in providing clients with second to none client services.
Born and raised in the Comox Valley, I am thrilled to be “home’ after attending Queen’s University for four years. From a community-minded family, I also enjoy and eagerly participate in local sports teams, hiking and surfing. In my creative time, I enjoy playing the piano.
