Financial Author and Public Speaker

While working in investment management, Lana focused on educating people on financial affairs, with an emphasis on empowering women with this knowledge. She wrote two books on financial literacy, one of which became a national best seller. Lana views public service as a means to convey her passion for financial literacy, and to ensure that best financial practices are applied at all levels of government. 



Political Activist

During the launch of her most recent business, Lana realized that the policy environment created by the BC NDP-Green coalition is harming British Columbia’s economy and polarizing communities. Lana’s political activism has been ignited in opposition to this divisive government. 



Wife and Mother and Lifelong Vancouver Resident

Lana's greatest privilege has been growing up in Vancouver and, along with her husband, Doug, raising their two children, Benny and Chloe and their dog, Sidney (Crosby, of course) here in this beautiful province.   An avid traveler, Lana also keeps busy with yoga, skiing, biking, and tennis.
