Tanysia Komers is a different kind of CFP (Certified Financial Planner). She studied Creative Writing at the University of Victoria, played varsity level rugby, took some time in Spain to complete an International Hospitality Internship, and teaches micro-econ for fun. A self-proclaimed “nerd”, she fell in love with the complexities of financial planning and the personal relationships she builds with clients when she began her practice with Investors Group in 2010.
Tanysia is thrilled to be involved with JCI; a community that has both a local and international impact and has helped her to build a network of forward-thinking, active and charitable individuals.
When Tanysia isn’t promoting financial literacy or corralling professionals for results, you can find her in the mountains, on her yoga mat, or with her nose buried in a book.
