Amanda is a Wealth Advisor in Waterloo and has worked at RBC Financial Group for over 24 years. She is a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute and holds many other designations in addition to a degree in Economics. She sits on the RBC Women’s Advisory Board and is a member of the Dominion Securities Advisory Board as well.
Amanda is an avid community advocate. In addition to her long-time support of United Way KW, she is a founder of WOW (Women of Waterloo Region) and supports many other charitable organizations. Her commitment to community stems from challenges she experienced as a single mother, trying to balance being a parent, being a student and working to provide for her young son. Now that she’s able, she gives back in many different ways – both financially and in time. Amanda’s motto is “do something different”, and this is evident throughout her life. For her, that ‘something different’ includes making a positive difference in the lives of others.
From a personal perspective, Amanda is married to Chris Iles, and in addition to her son who is now 18, has two step-sons and two dogs. Her hobbies include biking, hiking and of course, attending charity events. Amanda is a ‘helper’ and would like to be remembered as someone who “gave, did (something different) and loved”.
