Brad Hemphill
Senior Financial Advisor, Halton

Brad knows all about the unique challenges faced by education members, dealing with specific financial questions, stretching a budget and raising a family. His wife is a teacher, and their young son will soon be going to school. Brad combines this personal understanding with specific training and experience in the financial sector, in order to help Educators’ clients. He holds a Diploma in Financial Services from Mohawk College, is currently working on his CFP® designation, and has worked for seven years in financial planning for RBC and Scotiabank. “I love being able to find unique ways to help my clients reach their goals. I also love meeting new people from a wide range of backgrounds.” Brad chose to work at Educators Financial Group because “Educators offers something special to our clients, which is a unique understanding of their needs.” With Brad’s background, we’re sure his clients would agree.

Mara Rossi
Mortgage Specialist - Agent

Mara’s life is diverse. She has studied political science, economics, accounting, finance … as well as reflexology. Her passions range from finance (she’s worked in Collections, Operations, Underwriting, Lending, Sales Leadership and Business Development, and Sales and Client Experience) to being a Reflexologist. As a result, she believes in taking a broad, holistic approach with her clients. “We function in connectedness. Our finances are part of our journey, not necessarily something to be focused on in isolation”, she says. Mara is pleased to work at Educators, because the company supports education members who help our children by building a solid learning foundation and a safe place to explore and have fun. As a licensed mortgage agent, she looks forward to helping clients focus on all their priorities and celebrating with them as new chapters of their story come together.
