Her area of expertise has also expanded into career navigation, entrepreneurship and women’s workplace equity and diversity issues. Lesley-Anne will bring the focus and insight you need to get on the right track towards financial and career independence

Today she is armed with her three books The Modern Couple’s Money Guide: 7 Smart Steps to Building Wealth Together (April 2016), Well-Heeled: The Smart Girl’s Guide to Getting Rich (April 2014), and Rich by Thirty: Your Guide to Financial Success (January 2007/2015). Lesley-Anne Scorgie owns and operates MeVest, a money school for Canadians offering one-on-one money coaching and employer programs.

In addition to being a guest of Oprah Winfrey, Lesley-Anne Scorgie has made numerous television appearances including CBC, Breakfast Television, The Social, Montel Williams, and MTV Live. Her financial articles have appeared in publications such as Metro News, Toronto Star, Men’s Health magazine, the Globe and Mail and the Calgary Herald.
