Lana Russell, Mortgage Professional

Hello, my name is Lana Russell. I am a knowledgeable and experienced mortgage specialist with strong financial services experience. I have completed extensive training, educational programs and industry-related courses, which qualify me to analyze your mortgage portfolio and provide valuable insight and advice, to help ensure that you're in the best position to meet your personal financial goals. I have my Personal Financial Planning Designation and have assisted many of my clients, from first time home buyers to those who own several properties. I was employed by Scotiabank for 25 years, the last seven of which were as a Branch Manager. I have the great opportunity now to work with a team of professionals, most of whom have previous banking experience as well, so we are able to add value in a holistic financial conversation while assisting you with your mortgage. I have been very involved in several Community/Charitable Events over the past 25 years, some of which are; Children's Hospital, Ride For a Cure, The Terry Fox Run, Rick Hansen Charity and Paws For a Cause, Bikes for Kids, to name a few.
