Meet the Team

Global Currency Services has a diverse team with one goal in common:  we all aim to deliver the best client experience possible.  When choosing new team members, Global Currency Services hires staff that can offer service in different languages, and staff that have various travel related experiences.  These attributes help us to deliver service that can’t be beat.  Hoping to join our team? Contact Carinta.

Carinta founded Global Currency Services in 2000.  After completing a degree in Economics, she continued her industry related education by completing the Canadian Institute for Financial Crime Analysis program, training with The Canadian Anti-Money Laundering Institute and holding a current Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) certification.   

Carinta and her husband justify their love of travelling by calling it “industry research” and enjoy exploring the world with their two daughters.   

When Carinta is not working or spending time with her family, she is finding ways to support her industry through the Canadian Money Service Association and supporting entrepreneurship through the Business Centre of Guelph Wellington

Melissa joined the Global Currency Services team in 2017 and is by far the most well read  member of staff.  She dominates all staff trivia competitions and seems to have a personal and relatable story about every international destination.  She brings extensive customer service experience to this position which complements her previous studies at Humber College.   

When Melissa isn’t working, she is balancing the busy life of having two young kids and a new dog.  In between all of life’s busyness she still seems to find time to be the most up-to-date on all current events.
