WELCOME TO ROCK THOMPSON PLANNING

My journey in the financial planning world started with my family’s financial challenges. Like most, I had not learned money basics in school. Born out of necessity when faced with raising two small children on my own, I read and learned everything I could about money management and good stewardship. From this a career was born. Decades later, (time does fly) my family has grown and so have the opportunities to help others. It remains a passion to help people make wise financial decisions that align with their values and dreams. My approach is to teach, coach, and take what might be overwhelming and create a logical, achievable plan.

This is a relationship, always evolving and growing with you. Together we navigate the everyday and unexpected financial changes that arise. It is not always easy but it can be fun (really!) as we walk this road together.

I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and help you see what you can accomplish.

Brent Hackett,
Executive Director/CEO – Our Daily Bread Ministries Canada

We started working with Kate in 2007 shortly after we were married. Early on she helped us establish short term and long term savings goals through products we were comfortable with. Kate also set us up with insurance coverage that was affordable and appropriate for where we were. Since having children we’ve worked with Kate to make sure our kids will have financial help with thier educations. There was zero hesitation to move with Kate into her new venture. What we appreciate most about Kate and her team is they are real people that treat us like real people. There is never any pressure to do anything we are not comfortable with. We are always met with friendly, practical advice that has only helped advance our lives.
