As far back as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with learning. Whether it be new skills or perspectives, I’m most intrigued by the things I don’t know. That desire has afforded me some of my most exhilarating and challenging experiences, and I hope that journey continues.

Originally from Canada, Rehana still lives for hockey (Go Pens!) and the great outdoors. When not trying to explain to her grandmother what impact investing is, Rehana is usually torturing herself in a spinning class or eyeballs deep in a good book.
