As Seen In
Growing up, I always had an inkling that I was meant to serve others, but I didn’t know how. Now, my purpose is clear. Using my decades of expertise in money mindset and management, I have devoted my life to helping thousands of women liberate themselves from small thinking and small bank accounts.
I began teaching myself about investing at just 16 years old.
By the time I hit college, I started advising my friends. Before the age of 22, I bought my first house and went on to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in banking and finance – and later, a master’s degree in financial management. I then began a lucrative career as a licensed financial planner and advisor for high-net-worth individuals. Working at major corporate brokerage firms such as UBS and Edelman, I provided financial planning, trading, and asset management for clients with 5, 10, and 15 million-dollar portfolios.
While my career was thriving, it quickly dawned on me that more people deserved access to financial freedom. It was then that I left my corporate career to launch Finances Demystified.
Today, I am incredibly proud of the life I’ve made. Not only do I have a husband, daughter, and new baby on the way, but I have built my business to almost 8-figures, officially making me the first multi-millionaire in my family!
But It Wasn’t Always This Way…
How about when my car got repossessed? Let’s discuss how it felt when my home was in foreclosure…or what about when my credit score dropped to 400?
I know what it’s like to be facing an uphill battle. Better yet, I know what it takes to come out on the other side. Both my highest highs and my lowest lows have made me uniquely qualified to guide others out of the depths of financial despair. I’ve lived both of these realities and that is why I can now, confidently educate other women on every level of their finances.
