Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, Vivien first became involved with the stock market in 2006, when she started working for RBC Dominion Securities, the Royal Bank of Canada’s full-service brokerage firm. It was at RBC DS that Vivien gained an understanding of commodity investing and became intrigued with how the markets move in direct correlation with the economy.
In 2007, Vivien graduated from Concordia University with a Bachelor of Arts specializing in English Literature. She later enrolled in the Writing and Communications program at Simon Fraser University. Vivien volunteered with the Investing News Network in the spring of 2010, and interned for Momentum Magazine in Vancouver. In the fall of 2010, Vivien began working for the Investing News Network in an official capacity as an assistant editor, where she is constantly learning more about the commodity markets. In the summer of 2011, Vivien was awarded a Certificate in Editing from Simon Fraser University.
