Certified Financial Planner CFP®

Insurance Advisor

I began my financial career in 1972, have my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® Professional designation and have proudly lived in the Ripley/Kincardine area all of my life.  Since 1987, thanks to the wisdom and experience of our team, as well as our shared passion for understanding clients’ needs and building their financial success, my office has grown to one of the largest independent investment firms across Canada.

My husband Rob and I raised two wonderful children in Kincardine and we continue to enjoy the area with all it has to offer -- especially the amazing sunsets over Lake Huron.  I also enjoy gardening, travelling, golfing, biking, curling and cross-country skiing.

Associate Financial Advisor

Insurance Advisor

I started working for Janice fresh out of college in 2004.  In an effort to gain a broader range of experience in the financial industry, I took a tour of the banking system, which has provided me with a strong financial background in both investing and credit.  In 2018, I rejoined the Matchett team and am happy to be home!  As an Associate Financial Advisor, I understand how important it is for my clients to reach their financial goals, and I have a strong desire to help my clients navigate their way through some of life’s most important decisions.

On a personal note, I enjoy reading, yoga, and spending time with my nieces and nephews; and my dog CeCe of course.

I started my career in the financial services industry in 1996 as a Licensed Life Insurance Agent.  From there, I progressed through different roles in my varied career including leading teams for insurance and manufacturing call centres.  I joined the Matchett team in 2019 and look forward to helping the company to continue to grow.  I plan to renew my life insurance license and obtain other certifications as I assist Janice Matchett. 
 
I live in Kincardine with my partner, Andrea, and our two wonderful girls.  I have an elder daughter away from home at University as well.  In my free time I play music, ride my motorcycle and act in productions held by our local community theatres.

Licensed Assistant

I started out in the financial services industry as a co-op student during high school and for the majority of my career, I have continued to do so.  That seems like ages ago!  In 2008 I joined the Matchett team where I do the bulk of processing trades for our office in my role as a Licensed Assistant.  

Bruce County has always been home to myself, my husband Jeff and our children.  Our country home near Ripley has been a great place to raise our family.  We are blessed to be the parents of two wonderful daughters.  In my free time I volunteer, garden and thoroughly enjoy a great read!

Tax Preparation

Administrative Assistant

In 2010, I began my career in the accounting industry.  Six years later, I formalized my on-the-job training with a Certificate in Bookkeeping from Conestoga College.  After graduating with honours, I continued to further my education with ongoing courses and seminars.  I then began to work for an accounting firm and streamlined my bookkeeping skills while learning more about tax preparation.  I went on to operate a bookkeeping and tax preparation business of my own in the city but then I decided to switch to small-town living with my family by moving to beautiful Kincardine to complete tax returns and assist Sarah Proudlove.

In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my family and spending time in the great outdoors.

Having over twenty years of experience as a Bookkeeper, I joined the Matchett Financial Services team to assist with tax preparation.  When the Receptionist position became available, I started working here full-time but I still assist during tax time.  

My husband Doug and I moved to Kincardine in 2014.  We have two adult daughters that enjoy coming to our home on Lake Huron.  I enjoy reading, crocheting and sewing.

 Andrea Matchett

Andrea Matchett

Marketing Coordinator

Receptionist

I have been part of the Matchett Financial team since 1986...  Okay, I didn’t start working right away!  At age thirteen, I started with simple tasks like filing and paper shredding.  Today, I work part-time as the Marketing Coordinator.  On occasion, I am also the Receptionist and will greet you at the front desk.  I live in beautiful Kincardine with my partner, Terry, and our two energetic girls and I consider myself lucky every day.

I really enjoy spending time with the people I love and picking away at multiple music projects I am involved in.  Being creative, riding my motorcycle, gardening and being there for others are just a few of my favourite things!
