Your experts

Mélanie Verner

Financial Security Advisor
Life and Health Care Insurance


At Simplicité Financière, I am your life and health care insurance expert. I love my work because it enables me to have a real impact on people’s lives. I am a compassionate woman, fully committed in all my endeavours. I think the here and now of life should be enjoyed while preparing for the future, and that is why I believe in life and health care insurance. At your first meeting with me, you will readily realize I am a woman of great integrity and honesty. I do this work because I want to help people demystify their insurance needs without having to run around everywhere to find answers. As a broker, I have access to more than 20 insurance companies, so I shop for you. Further, you will know exactly why you purchased a certain amount of protection with a certain company, leaving you with peace of mind. On a more personal note, I am the mother of two young children and the wife of my business partner, Ian Deslauriers. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources, and I worked for seven years for the federal government as a human resources consultant before falling into finance’s magic potion! So, I quit my job and went into business by choice and with passion. I look forward to meet you and learn about you!

I am your expert for all your needs relating to investment and income tax returns! I have been working in this field since 2006, and I am also licensed for life and health care insurance. You will surely agree with me that you are working hard for your money! That is why it is of paramount importance for me to provide you with sound advice commensurate with your level of comfort in order to enable you to make your savings grow. I am a broker, which means that I have access to all investment companies and to all types of accounts, and, thus, you may put your eggs in several baskets, but with a single point of contact. The goal here is to make your life easier. I am familiar with financial tools and I can show you how to use them in the most efficient way. For me, numbers are a passion! I also understand that such may not be the case for all! That is why I like to see my customers take advantage of my knowledge and expertise in order to get clear answers to their questions. As for my personal life, I am the father of two beautiful children (yes, I am a hockey and soccer dad), and I am also married to my colleague and partner, Mélanie Verner, and, at times, I also play a mean guitar! Now that you know me, why not come and see me to talk about investments!
