Corry Staff, CFP®

Certified Financial Planner
Investment Funds Advisor - Investia Financial Services Inc.

Sought after speaker, Certified Financial Planner, Corry Staff is known for her fun and engaging seminars.

"Everyone, no matter how successful or wealthy, experiences money-related stress. The whole point of financial planning is to eliminate that stress so you can feel confident with the decisions you're making. With a little bit of effort up front, you can put your finances on autopilot and enjoy the ride until your next big life event gives you reason to revisit your plan."

After 23 years in the retail and banking industry, Corry Staff was looking for a career change that "at the end of the day would make me feel like I had made a difference in someone's life".

Convinced by a former Retail Manager (and mentor), that coming on board with Sunlife Financial as an advisor and doing things "your way", Corry took a leap of faith and has never looked back.

Fourteen years later she now has her own Financial Planning Firm, and through the creation of Cocktails and Cash™ Financial Parties for Women, and Financially Speaking, the NEW corporate "lunch 'n learn" series, has been able to have a monumental impact on the lives of hundreds of men and women and their families.

Corry's personal focus is on wealth accumulation, risk mitigation, retirement and estate planning. She has an extensive background in assisting people going through separation and divorce. Relationships, education, guidance and trust is the foundation to Corry's practice.

Her focus now is not only to continue to inspire financial success in others, but to also mentor and support others who want to do the same.

Corry has been a Member Advocis, the Financial Advisors Association of Canada since 2006 and currently sits on the Board in the Professional Conduct Chair. She is also a member of the Financial Planners Standards Council (FPSC).

Financial Planning Assistant

Yaeji is a young professional who always had passion in assisting those in need of financial solutions. And her position as Financial Planning Assistant at Corry Staff Financial Group sure is the perfect starting point for her.

Yaeji was born in South Korea and spent her childhood there. She was always eager to learn and experience new things, and her parents seeing the potential in Yaeji, moving to Canada was the best present for her. Proud to be Korean-Canadian, Yaeji committed her time at university by participating in leadership positions at local Korean church and Christian Student Association. She organized numerous social events to express gratitude and give back to the community; and through these events, she built strong cultural bond and met her lifelong friends. As she already experienced the thrill of having strong sense of belonging, she is excited to experience it once again.

Before her passion in finance was formed, Yaeji wanted to be an animal trainer at a zoo. She always loved animals and spending every second of her life with them was her dream. She expressed her affection by volunteering to walk her neighbor's dogs and expanded by pet-sitting. If anyone is looking for a dog-sitter, cat-sitter or an animal-sitter, please do not hesitate to contact Yaeji.

Upon realization of her passion in financial planning, she pursued on by graduating in Finance at Western University and in Professional Financial Services at Fanshawe College.
