If you could remove some of the stress of splitting up with your partner, why wouldn’t you?
Between advice from family, well-meaning friends and countless internet searches there is just too much information to process. And not enough specific information to help you figure out what’s right for you.
Imagine having someone who could answer all of your money related questions and save you hours of research and thousands of dollars on a lawyer.
Divorce is financially draining and emotionally exhausting -- you might feel fear, regret, anger and sadness. And when emotions are high, it’s hard to make good choices.
I have experienced all of these confusing emotions. I’ve been through a painful divorce and successfully started a new life with my children. Because of this, I am in a unique position to understand and help you move from fear and anxiety towards hope and freedom.
Making decisions without a real understanding of the financial implications can be costly. That’s why arming my clients with the best knowledge and possibility is my mission. I want people to know their options so they can get to the life they want sooner.
I have helped many clients develop and implement their financial plan. I understand that money, and our relationship with it, is personal.
That’s why I listen with an open mind. I want to figure out what is important to you before we start working on a solution.
Because I am committed to you and my profession, I continuously upgrade my education and knowledge.
I have ten years of Financial Planning Experience with RBC and CIBC. I am a Chartered Financial Divorce Specialist, Certified Financial Planner, have an MBA and hold a CFA charter.
My experience and education provide me with in-depth understanding of different financial planning strategies. And as an independent advisor, my advice is completely unbiased - I am focused entirely on your goals.
My reward comes from sharing my energy and passion and from guiding people like you toward your new financial future.

"It was significant at such a vulnerable time in my life. I felt confident that you had the knowledge and expertise to guide me in developing a variety of sound fiscal options to present to my spouse as we walk through our separation and pending divorce. It was important to me during a time when I was experiencing the emotional impact of separation that you offered clear objective financial advice. I learned a great deal which will serve me in the future. Working with you over video and phone worked very well for me. It provided a great deal of flexibility and in no way hampered our work together. If I would have had to travel to Vancouver to meet in person, I would not have been able to do it. By being available remotely, your services will be accessible to many who would other wise not have the opportunity to have the benefit of your services. Your caring interpersonal skills and clear communication were key in building the trusting relationship that developed over the time we worked together on my file. You were exceptionally accommodating with scheduling and making yourself available for me and my many questions. Your fee was reasonable and fair and it was worth every penny!"

"Working with Madhu, I never felt like I asked a ‘wrong’ question and she always answered every one of them. Getting divorced made me feel insecure and out of place, Madhu made me feel comfortable being myself. I never got the feeling that I took up too much of her time. All our conversations were by telephone due to the geographical distance. At first, I thought we should meet in person because I like to talk to people face to face, but after our first phone call, I was comfortable with our interactions as they were. Overall it might have been the worst time in my life and I had no idea what was supposed to happen or what steps to take. Madhu assured me that everything was going to be okay and guided me through the whole process. I have witnessed a genuine woman who is professional with a personal approach. "
