Jordan Dawes

Jordan Dawes, The Watkins Group

Jordan began his financial career with a Credit Union before joining the Watkins Group in 2015. He earned his CFP while taking on the senior advisor position at a bank in Kamloops while supporting his wife through law school. Jordan now lives on the island he grew up on, and is back managing relationships with the team. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone more passionate about educating his clients, and helping everyday people achieve their financial goals – whether it be at the office, or online through his social media channel. Occasionally, you may find him fishing off the coast or playing hockey at ridiculously late ice slots. He lives in Langford, BC with his wife, Stephanie, and his daughter, Dove.

Debbie Battler, DE SEO Consulting

I have been in the Direct Marketing business for over 15 years in Vancouver. I moved back to Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island 4 years ago to be closer to my family. I am passionate about helping my clients get better results for their websites on the internet. I presume we all want more sales and customers with more website traffic. When people search for you or your targeted keywords on Google do you appear? I work to ensure potential customers find you, which should be a top priority for businesses today.  "SEO is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic search engine results." It is an integral addition to any digital marketing strategy. Achieving visibility and rankings is not easy, but it can be done. We help our clients succeed with more traffic, and proven results.

Mary Lummerding
Kitchen Times

Mary Lummerding, Chef -
What’s for dinner?

As a Personal Chef and Cooking Coach, I help home-based busy Entrepreneurs and Professionals to make healthful, easy meals to break the cycle of take out and delivery. With planning, practise and some lively music, cooking can be very easy and fun.
Cooking is a valuable skill. It gives you relaxing time away from your business. Cooking can help your brain to be healthy because you are organizing, sequencing, calculating, estimating, etc, etc!
Set your place at the table, turn on some music or a podcast, and enjoy the meal that you prepared for your Self.
I also encourage parents to cook with their children to increase their independence and confidence in taking care of them selves and contribute to taking care of the household.

Let’s work together so you achieve your goal to cook for yourself:
• for improving your health,
• for social reasons (invite family and friends),
• or to achieve a money saving goal.

Gardening suggestions can also be included!
