Anthony is passionate about personal finance, and his 'day-job' is at a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Canadians enhance their personal finance skills, learn about options for dealing with their debt, and provide hope for clients experiencing difficult financial situations.

The energy, ideas, and personality of each director add so much to our work as a board, and good things happen when we work together.”
