Helen has served in many capacities with each of her employers and has honed her skills in client and team relationship building and support.

Helen is proud to have received a number of Client Service Excellence awards throughout her career and she feels this positions her nicely in her new role with Koppeser Wealth Counsel.  Helen has made a commitment to continue to deliver exemplary service to both clients and team members at KWC.  Helen is excited to join KWC where commitment to the clients’ needs are paramount.

Helen and her husband Les are proud to call Waterloo home. They consider themselves fortunate to live in such vibrant and diverse community. Being raised in rural Ontario, it was important to the McAuslan’s to raise their son (Shawn) in a nurturing and progressive community where relationships and community involvement run deep.  Helen and Les enjoy spending time with their son Shawn, daughter in law Lea and grandchildren Kylie and Logan.  Sports have always been important to the McAuslan’s and Helen can often be found in local arenas cheering on local children or family members. Most Friday nights for many years, you will find Helen and Les at The Aud cheering on the Kitchener Rangers.
