    As a recent addition to the Stepright Capital team my, name is Lynda Oliver. Born in Ireland, I immigrated to Canada with my parents at the age of 7. I grew up in Hamilton and moved to Brantford 1998.

     

    In my career I have worked in the banking industry for 15 years, working my way up from a part-time teller to a financial advisor all with the same financial institution. I was blessed with the opportunity to leave the bank and raise my two amazing children. I have enjoyed working in the customer service industry most of my life - over 25 years. My passion is customer service! You can rest assured clients are always my first priority.
