Meet Our Team

If there ever is a problem, you need to be able to talk to a broker that is near to you and can give advice that puts your needs first, not those of the insurance company. As insurance brokers it is our job to represent you and act on your behalf to help settle issues, such as claims and coverage.

Judy Parkes

Ext. 120

Born and raised in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario,  Judy’s first big move was to Toronto, where she lived and worked in the heart of downtown. Several years later, another move took her to a small village in Oxfordshire, England.  On her return to Canada with her husband, Tottenham was the perfect compromise, close to the big city but will a small town feel. 
Along with the move to the Ontario countryside, Judy gave up her career in IT and enjoys working in a local office, being close enough to home to avoid the commute, and to be able to have lunch at home with her dog, Whiskey.
