Financial Security Advisor
I began my career with Freedom 55 Financial in July of 2001. I enjoy meeting with new and existing clients and helping them to achieve their goals and dreams. I truly value my client’s faith and trust they have in me. Building lasting client relationships allows me the privilege to also work with my client’s children and grandchildren.
We at Pixel Financial Group offer a full range of financial security planning products, including Life Insurance, Critical Illness Insurance, Disability Insurance, Investment Products and Mortgages. We also work with Small Businesses on Business Insurance, Group Benefits and Group Retirement Plans. My clients have found great value in working through a financial plan with our team and helping them to focus on all the little details, leading to their whole financial picture.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time at our family cottage, hosting friends and family. I enjoy reading a good book, tackling jigsaw puzzles and gardening. I am passionate about volunteering in my community with Woolwich Community Services.
I look forward to continuing to help clients meet their financial goals and dreams!

Karen Chisholm, CFP®, CLU, CHS
I began this career with Freedom 55 Financial in 2014 and have not looked back. Many of my prior working years were also spent in the financial world however the work I do now is most rewarding in building long-term professional relationships with my clients.
As a CFP, CLU and CHS professional, I most enjoy working closely with business owners, farm operations, individuals and families who are interested in and excited about making plans for their future, be they financial management, retirement, estate and/or succession plans.
When not working with my clients, I enjoy traveling as well as running, workouts, hiking, skiing and golfing where I live and work on Georgian Bay. I also spend time with friends and family on the opposite shore at our family cottage. I too love the work I do for my community through Beaver Valley Outreach.
Financial Security Advisor
I began my career with Canada Life in February 2020, after graduating from the University of Guelph, earning my Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree. From there, I immersed myself into the financial world as I have always had a passion for education, people, and finances.
As a financial advisor, I help my clients create a customized financial plan to fit your unique situation. Areas of focus are Investment Strategies, Retirement and Estate Planning, Insurance, and Mortgages. I provide professional and valuable advice as we work together to help plan for a financially successful future for you and your family, and for you to be able to enjoy the life you desire.
Outside of work, I enjoy playing hockey, golf, and tennis, as well as volunteering at my church as I have been a high school youth leader for the past 6 years. Having the opportunity to be apart of the lives of youth and young adults as they grow in their personal and spiritual lives has been the greatest gift and taught me more than I could have ever asked for.
I look forward to having the opportunity to build a long lasting and trusting relationship with you as we work together step by step, through all stages of life.
