"My role here is a self-employed financial advisor, working with my own clientele. I provide investment/estate planning, a variety of insurance products, and wealth management for people."

When asked about his experience attending Northwestern, Ehgoetz said "I had a great experience while attending Northwestern, I definitely made life-long friends while I was there. I still remain in contact with a number of them, and see them on a regular basis."

"After I left Northwestern, I attended Wilfrid Laurier University where I took Business and Economics. From there, I joined a large insurance company straight out of university, where I worked in a number of roles for six years. After that, I decided that I wanted to be back in Stratford, which is where I was born and raised. I decided to come back here and start a financial planning business."

When asked about people who inspired him at Northwestern, Andrew said "I think there were a number of individuals who inspired me while I was at Northwestern. I look back and I was certainly involved in a number of sports, rugby being the main one. Certainly, Ian Robertson, and definitely Ed Fluter played a large part in keeping me engaged in school so we could continue with some of the extracurricular activities. As well a number of other teachers helped me throughout the years."

"I think that if I look back at my high school years, I probably would identify one specific year as being a culmination of my time at Northwestern. That would be in 2001, when our senior boys rugby team ended up winning OFSAA. That was a culmination of hard work, where a group of us went through together from grade nine and put a lot of time out on the rugby field. Having early practices, and really going above and beyond and coming together. I think that would be the culmination and the one item that still sticks out to me to this day."

When asked about certain classes that helped him today, he said "When I was at Northwestern, I had a very strong focus on the business end of things. I took a number of accounting, math, and business classes as well. I look back and remember taking a typing class, and to this day I'm thankful that I can type things out on the keyboard pretty quickly. It's things like that I'll continue to carry with me for life."
