  • Kathryn Forbes Kathryn Forbes Principal Broker

    Kathryn R.I.B. (Ont.) C.A.I.B was born and raised in Cambridge (Preston), Ontario and she currently resides in the Cambridge area with her husband. Her parents were both in the insurance business and so talk of the insurance industry was a common topic at the family dinner table. Joining the family business seemed like a natural progression.

    She obtained her Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker designation in 2002 and secured her Level 2 unrestricted Insurance Broker’s license shortly thereafter. Kathryn enjoys the fact that she has the opportunity to be able to meet and talk with a vast diversity of new people in her work

    "I am very fortunate to be able to work directly with our clients to lend my expertise regarding all aspects of insurance."

    She is passionate about physical fitness and healthy eating. She has taken up learning the game of golf and she also enjoys kayaking, reading, and gardening. One of her pet charities is the Canadian Cancer Society and so she contributes time and money to this worthy cause.

  • Elza Morris Elza Morris Broker/Customer Service

    Elza R.I.B. (Ont.) C.I.P. was born and raised in Cambridge (Galt), and has lived in Cambridge all of her life. She has been part of the Insurance Industry for over 15 years, securing her Chartered Insurance Professional designation in 2005.

    Elza’s father and brother are both long-time insurance brokers so she grew up with insurance-related conversations being common in their family. Naturally, when the opportunity came along to be part of a family brokerage, it just seemed like the perfect fit.

    "When clients call or come into our office, they know exactly who they are speaking with. Some of our clients are third generation insureds! I think that is a great reflection on us."

    Elza enjoys the “country life” with her husband and two children. She leads an active life and has caught the bug for golf. When not on the golf course she enjoys playing the piano, going to the gym and reading. Elza is also very active in her Church, she has been a long-time parishioner of St. Ambrose Church. Elza and her family volunteer extensively with Community Living, which she finds is a truly rewarding experience.
