Lesley Lynch

Hello, my name is Lesley, I am the Financial Literacy Counsellor with The Immigrant Education Society (TIES) Money Smart Program. Nice to meet you! I have been employed within the banking sector as a customer service representative, financial advisor, commercial account manager and credit counsellor, bringing both 10+ years of experience and a network of knowledge. I like to think of myself as a life long learner, as I am always enrolling in some small workshop, session, or course. I have earned a Technical Diploma, Bachelor of Science and am currently enrolled to obtain my Accredited Financial Counsellor of Canada Certification. Ongoing learning is a passion of mine and I love to share that knowledge. Like the saying goes, “knowledge isn’t power until it is applied” -Dale Carnegie.

In my off time, my family and I love camping and exploring the great outdoors. I am also an aspiring yoga teacher, having completed my teacher training in 2017.
