Last fall, T.E. Consultant Valerie Pippy closed the chapter on her 30-year career in our Toronto office. She will continue to work out of our Newfoundland office for a few more years as she transitions to full-time retirement. In true Valerie fashion, even this was an occasion to be of service to others.
A farewell reception in appreciation of Val’s dedication was attended by several of her Toronto-area clients, many of whom had been with Val through most of her career. The event was also an occasion for Val to raise awareness about the life-changing work of the Live Different builds program – a cause that is very close to Val’s heart.
In 2016, Val and various T.E. staff joined Live Different in the Dominican Republic to build a home for a family in need. Deeply affected by this experience, Val made it her mission to return again in two years and build not one, but two homes.
Due to the generosity of Val’s clients, family and friends – and Val herself – $140,250 was raised! She will be returning to the Dominican Republic in March 2018, joined by various family members, friends, as well as some staff from T.E. Wealth and their sister company, Leon Frazer.
This build is dedicated to the memory of her mother, Eileen Jackson, who is the reason that Val is the courageous, passionate and generous person we know her to be today.
Val has plans to return to the Dominican Republic in 2019 to build two more homes. Perhaps you’ll consider joining her and be part of a life-changing experience.
