What’s my story?

I went through three different fields before finding my perfect fit: financial planning. It was hard to find a place where my love of number crunching and desire to help others could come together. I went from assistant social worker where I missed numbers, to demographer where I missed people, and finally settled on business analysis.

Being a business analyst was good enough and I did things outside of work to balance what was missing - like helping others and meeting new challenges.

During my free time I read about personal finance, meditated, danced, and joined different volunteer organizations. It was while volunteering that I met my first real life financial planner.

From there I began to learn everything about this career. I was hesitant to start over again. Being a business analyst was good enough, dare I really ask for more?

I did.

I quit my well paid job to follow my calling to be a financial planner. But before I could ask others to follow their dreams and use money as a tool, I first had to do the same for myself.

This led me to Fundacion Mujer, a non-profit microfinance organization in Costa Rica. While there I learned to relax and trust more. As the ticos say, pura vida mae. Now as a financial educator and empowerment coach, my love of numbers and desire to see others flourish dance to the same beat.

I earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Practitioner designation after rigorous schooling, a difficult exam, and two years of working under someone else. The CFP® designation covers all the nuanced areas of money. It also requires continued education because as you know, the rules are always changing. Plus, its fiduciary standard means I ALWAYS put your interests first.

While my technical skills will help you quickly navigate financial questions, it’s my ability to empower you that will transform your relationship with money.

With almost 8 billion souls on this one planet we need new ways of looking at life, and this includes the way we are with money. As a Quaker and social activist I love learning about generative economics that move us from exploiting resources to stewarding our shared planet.

One-on-One Coaching

I believe in you. Whatever your dream I am excited to see you bring it to life. I know you can do it, just like a caterpillar can transform into a butterfly. The world is abundant and exciting. It’s a full, techni-color adventure, and the setbacks are simply plot twists. I’m positive of it.

Money can feel frightening, overwhelming, confusing, and lonely. I’ve gone through all of that myself. It is an honor to sit with you as you make sense of how to right size money - the practice of understanding money’s role in your life and where adjustments may be needed.

When you share a childhood memory of money in one breath and then a difficult conversation with your boss in another, don’t be surprised when I find a thread and ask a question that helps you breathe more deeply.

I will help you bring out those money skeletons in your closet. The credit card in default, the raise you're afraid to ask for, the spending plan that doesn't make it past the first paycheck, the limiting mindset.

Then we’ll get to know these skeletons, maybe serve them tea, find out their purpose, and honor their gifts. I’ll hold your hand through it and put on some music when it’s time to dance. As Alice Walker says, hard times require furious dancing and Celia Cruz reminds us que la vida es un carnaval.

As your money sherpa, empowerment coach, and chief cheerleader my desire is to remind you of how far you’ve come, of how much you can truly achieve. I will catalogue all of your progress, all of the decisions you’ve made, and behaviors you’ve outgrown.

When you’re fully at peace with money, it’s possible to embody joy and move towards your vision. And I’m telling you, the world needs your vision.

Workshops

Talking about money in of front strangers may sound frightening, but it can be liberating. Especially with like-minded peers and a facilitator (moi) who is a mama bear when it comes to creating a compassionate space.

Each 2-hour workshop includes a 45-minute one-on-one integration session. During this session we'll make sense of what you discovered during the workshop to take action on your new awareness. We'll outline next steps to go from where you're at to where you want to be.

Resilience Workshop
In this virtual workshop you'll tap into your inner resilience, see how it connects to your community, and walk away knowing you've got what it takes to feel good about your money. This is emotional financial literacy.

The workshop is highly interactive and participants are limited to 10.
