What’s that you ask?
I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER Professional and my goal is to give you a little “Everyday Finance.”
Here’s My Story
I’m an “Everyday Finance” kind of girl. I have an amazing career where I get to help people like you conquer their financial fears, while demystifying their financial questions. You know those questions you are burning for answers that no one seems to have. Those are the questions that I want to help you answer.
“How can I possibly afford a 2 week vacation in Italy?”
“How can I stop living paycheck to paycheck and finally have some savings?”
“What the heck is a 401(k) match and why do I care?”
“What credit card should I have?”
“Forget a vacation, I want to move to Bali for a year and study yoga. How can I do that?”
“My wardrobe is in shambles. I’m in serious need of an overhaul, but I’ve only got $250. Help.”
I’m an “Everyday Finance” girl who is married to a travel writing journalist. That is a dream come true! I love to write, speak, educate and help people like you with all things finance and lifestyle.
Here we are, aren’t we cute!
Welcome to the “Everyday Finance.”
Although I have way too many degrees and designations, an MBA and a CFP® (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professional), I am really here to talk about YOU!
But First, Why Listen To Me?
From the “expert” level, I have a credential in financial planning and have spent many countless hours elbow to elbow with clients planning, plotting and strategizing their financial future. I’ve worked with may different clients newly divorced, entrepreneurs, small business owners, college students, millennials, women, single mothers, couples and even the mega-rich.
Personally though, I’ve lived life. I’ve experienced the highs of being successful at an early age- I started my first business at 19 in college– to the lows of divorce and all the money (aka debt) complications that brings. I know both the joys and the pain points of money. I’ve had a lot, and a little, and everything in between.
As they say, “it takes one to know one,” and I’ve been where you are at…no matter where you are financially. Need to read more? Check out more of the “why me” on my Media page.
Let’s get back to you!
Why is it that you know more about how to use your mobile devices than you know about your finances?
How many times have you checked Facebook in the last week? Now, how many times have you checked your finances to see if they are in order? I’m guilty- how about you?
Why is that? Well, it’s no secret that seeing what your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend ate for dinner is far more interesting than looking at your account balances and reminding yourself that you can’t really afford that trip to Berlin that you are lusting after. Or, simply, that you have no idea what to do with your finances, so why even bother.
Quite often we idealize false things when really you just want to get out of where you are and fast forward to the place you want to be at. Calling all the lost money souls-this is for you.
Let’s Start A Financial Revolution
I believe that you are SCREAMING for someone to demystify money once and for all! The secret really isn’t a secret. All it takes is small shifts that lead to big changes, day after day. Oh, and have some fun while you are at it.
It’s not that you don’t want to learn about how to better yourself financially, it’s that everyone who is delivering the information is downright depressing. Don’t tell me what I’ve done wrong; tell me how I can do it right! Tell me how I can do more life for less money.
Join me on this journey and I promise to do just that – help you live a financially “smart” life, save money, make smart choices, devise a plan for the life you want to live, even expose all the bits and pieces of money that I’ve both mastered and struggled with, and hey, have some fun while we are doing it.
This is for you!
