Sean’s love of finance started at the University of Lethbridge where he majored in finance and accounting. He spent the first three years of his career working with a Big Four accounting firm in the private business group, after which he made the switch to finance. Sean’s first experience working in finance was as an equity research associate with UBS Securities. With two years of equity research experience, he decided to seek out the opportunity to become a financial advisor.
In 2009, Sean joined the Quarry Wealth Management team and in 2012 became an equal partner in the firm. In 2021, the mutual decision was made to wind down Quarry Wealth Management and form Moraine Wealth Advisory. He is passionate about bringing integrated financial planning to his clients. Sean has his CIM® designation, and is an Associate Portfolio Manager, as well as a Certified Financial Planner. He is currently working on completing his Certified Life Underwriter CLU® designation and is pursing the Registered Financial Planner RFP® certification.
Sean has been an active board member of the Women + Wealth Gala for several years. Each year, this not-for-profit event attracts hundreds of people and raises thousands of dollars for the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
Sean is married and has three teenagers that keep him busy shuttling them to and from their respective sports. In his spare time, when he can find it, he enjoys camping, golfing, and cooking.
Amanda has an undergraduate degree from Queen’s University, and a Post-Graduate certificate in Financial Planning from Sheridan College.
In the fall of 2020, Amanda relocated to Calgary from Kingston, Ontario. She completed the Harmonized Life License Qualification Program, and is now insurance licensed in Alberta.
In the insurance and portfolio administrator role, Amanda loves that she is given the opportunity to help people every day. With over decade of experience to draw from, she provides exceptional client service and financial processing support.
Throughout her career, Amanda has seen the benefits and positive impacts that sound financial planning can have on someone’s life. We are often present for key milestones and other life-changing events in our clients’ lives – education, home ownership, marriage, having a child, retirement, an illness or disability, or the loss of a loved one. Amanda takes her role very seriously and values the trust placed in us to support our clients through these life events. This is evident in our actions every day as we strive for quality and integrity in each of our relationships. We work closely with our industry partners to ensure an outstanding overall client experience.
On weekends, you can often find Amanda out on the trails with her puggle, exploring all the beauty the West has to offer. Like many Calgarians, she enjoys hiking, kayaking, and biking along the rivers. She also has a passion for planning events, previously having acted as an organizer for Kingston’s “VegFest”, through which she aided in raising thousands of dollars for local charities.
Amanda loves to give back and finds fulfilment through volunteering her time to causes close to her heart. She is eager to get involved in her new city and looks forward to taking on opportunities to make a positive impact. She has recently begun to volunteer with the Seniors’ Resource Society here in Calgary.
