Hepworth & Associates' Board of Advisors

Our Board

Cynthia Woods is a Toronto lawyer practicing in the west end. Since starting her practice in 1994, she has been offering legal services primarily in the areas of wills and estates, real estate and small business law. She offers services relating to sales, purchase and mortgage refinancing of residential property as well as commercial transactions including leasing.


Her experience with estate law, and those seniors issues of special assets, disabled dependents, and complicated family situations are involved is invaluable, as well as the many unintended consequences that families and dependents often confront, without thoughtful future planning.  That "invaluable" experience makes her and outstanding member of our Advisory Board.

Christine Woodman is a seasoned Real Estate professional, who has been both counsel and service provider to mature clients since the 1970's, and has developed a wealth of experience with the unique needs of this group.  Seniors and Pre-Seniors have serious concerns and numerous questions, regarding the sometimes difficult decision of when, to where, and how to relocate or remodel.  As an Accredited Senior Agent (ASA), she routinely deals with questions and all of the options.  Whether de-cluttering, moving closer to children and grandchildren, renting versus buying, the affordability and sensibility of any kind of move - shes been there and in between.

As a recently Accredited Senior Agent (ASA) and after 40+ years of successfully listing and selling real estate in the GTA, her experience with mature clients, and their serious concerns and questions, regarding those sometimes difficult decision of when, to where, and how to deal with housing decisions, makes her an ideal advisor to our Board. 

Staying ahead of the rapid changes today in the legal, financial, health, housing and lifestyle components of ageing well, is quite a challenge....but that's exactly what our clients expect us to possess when we're helping them navigate their path.


To do this, we rely upon a distinguished Board of Advisors, that Hepworth & Associates has assembled.  Each Board member was selected for their depth of skill, professional credentials and more specifically, their experience with those issues and opportunities that many seniors, pre-seniors and their families are often not aware of.


We are currently in discussions with additional Advisors, which we will be posting shortly.

Lola Macanowicz is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), a Certified Insurance Professional (CIP), a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), and a Certified Health Specialist (CHS).  Lola is also extremely active in her community, especially as a veteran member of the board of directors for the Village of Islington BIA, Lola's leadership helped establish Toronto’s Village of Murals.


Her credentials and experience with Seniors and Pre-Seniors in planning their future years has highlighted what we see often, a lack of financial planning for the future and an exposure to some uncomfortable surprises if not dealt with.  Her addition to our Advisory Board has provided remarkable insight and thought to our core Ageing Well Model.
