Just like his hometown of Paris, where the Grand and Nith Rivers converge, Zachary's success as a financial planner is a result of merging of his education with his passion for finance and economics.


He earned a Bachelor of Arts Honours Psychology degree from the University of Waterloo and after graduating, began his own financial planning practice in Paris with Edward Jones in 2016.


Zac loves being a part of his home town and is an energetic community contributor. He is an active member of the Paris Lion’s Club, the Paris and District Chamber of Commerce and a volunteer with The Kiwanis Club of Paris-Brant.


He is also passionate about curling, and you can often find him sweeping hard at the Paris Curling Club.

Choosing Paris as her community hasn't stopped Emilie from bringing a taste of her Antiguan home with her. She brings the warm and sunny personality of the Caribbean to every interaction.

Em is a Director of the Paris and District Chamber of Commerce. She is also an active member of the Paris Lions Club and a volunteer with The Kiwanis Club of Paris-Brant.
