My-Dawn had its genesis in Myron's family. Myron has been extremely fortunate in always having the full support of his wife and family in his career and many interests. Together with his wife, Mary Ann, they provided a solid family life for their 3 children, Melanie Dawn, Michalene Nadia and Myles Myron. It was Melanie's observation, prior to her brother's birth, that her middle name Dawn was the first letter of everyone's middle name, a fact we became aware of after a period of being unaware.
My-Dawn Financial was established to provide complete financial planning services and insurance protection for Myron's clientele. Myron has been providing financial planning and insurance protection to families and organizations in Alberta since 1996.
In order to provide his clientele the best possible advice, Myron is continually learning. His credentials include CFP – Certified Financial Planner, CHS – Certified Health Insurance Specialist. In addition Myron is currently working towards the CLU – Chartered Life Underwriter designation. These credentials provide the highest standard for Financial and Insurance Planning for the benefit of individuals, families, businesses, and charities.
