Goals & Dreams Financial Planning Team
Senior Financial Planner
Dip FP CFP
Having been in the financial planning industry since 1987, in 2001 I founded Goals & Dreams Financial Planning. I became a member firm of Genesys Wealth Advisers in 2005 and transitioned to Charter Financial Planning in 2015.
I have a Dip FP and CFP qualification, but the best learning has been working with real life situations over many years. We have a huge postcard board in our foyer where we proudly display postcards sent by our clients from all over the world.
I am passionate about helping people (especially women) take ownership of their decisions and help them feel empowered by educating them and facing the “fear” that is often associated with money (or lack thereof).
I belong to many Women’s networking groups and have recently joined the Institute of Women International, where I have undertaken advanced studies and I am now qualified to assist women to live their lives without limitation.
I am also currently in the process of writing a book “Attitude Abundance & Action” where I expand on the knowledge I have gleaned over many years.

Emma O’Toner (née Fowler)
Provisional Financial Planner
Emma has been working in the financial planning industry since 2017. She has completed a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Financial Planning and Finance, graduating at the end of 2018. Emma also has strong IT skills, having also completed a degree in Information Technology previously.
Emma is currently undertaking her professional year under Kath’s guidance. Emma enjoys analysing investments, world markets, economic trends, technology, sustainability and geopolitics and hopes that she can bring her technical skills and research to bear fruit for the clients of Goals and Dreams. Emma believes that everyone should have the knowledge and ability to take control of their personal finances and is keen to ensure that as many people as possible do not have to suffer from financial stress.
Outside of her work, Emma was the number 1 ranked female Historical Fencer in Australia (before COVID19 put a halt to tournaments), a sport that requires physical explosiveness, technical skills and a keen tactical mind. Emma also loves cooking for her wife, cuddling cats and working on her old car.
