Nikayla Tolhopf – Financial Planner
Nikayla has a passion for financial planning and helping others. She has been in the industry for almost 4 years and during this time she has absorbed a wealth of knowledge and ethical standards. She has a Diploma in Financial Planning and is on her way to complete her Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning. She particularly thrives on providing young people with the wealth of knowledge she has and guiding them through their financial journey. Her view on financial planning is to steer her clients in the direction that she would personally be comfortable with herself.
Nikayla also shares a passion for personal training. Outside of work she loves coming up with new workout routines,providing clients with nutrition tips and motivating and training clients. She holds great pride in motivating her clients to achieve their fitness or financial goals by setting them short term goals to help them achieve a greater milestone. She believes that if someone feels as though they can’t do something she will do what she can to help them through it with encouraging words and advice or by finding other alternatives that best fits them. She believes motivation, guidance and knowledge is the key to people achieving what they want to achieve.
She is also a bit of a health fanatic and loves sharing new fads about the next up and coming super foods but still finds it hard to say no to chocolate. She believes balance is good. It is good to enjoy life’s guilty pleasure and splurge a bit every now and then.
Outside of work Nikayla enjoys spending time with her partner, family and friends. She also loves travelling, surfing, bike riding and animals.
