Introduced by President Sue MacKinnon, Ana is currently working on the Business side of banking/commercial banking.

Here are some highlights of her classification talk:

  • She thanked Linda Porritt for introducing her to Rotary and to our Rotary Club

  • She started with HSBC, took time off to have her two boys( now 12 and 6 years of age) and taught English as a Second language, before getting back into the business banking with CIBC

  • During this COVID time, meeting the needs of clients is often a challenge that requires a change of thinking; advising businesses how to survive may not always mean borrowing more money – alternate solutions must be sought after. Cash flow so important as is sound inventory control practices

  • Ana studied Economics and Politics  and graduated from Warwick University in Coventry England

  • She currently teaches English as a second language to refugees

  • She is a member of the Oshawa and Whitby Chambers of Commerce and the two BIA’s as well

  • Hobby is cooking and more recently baking, especially bread

  • Ana likes Rotary because it feeds her passion for directly “helping people”
