As a young girl…
I was taught my value was in my looks. At 13 I was modeling, by 21 I was married and had a daughter. Then at 26, it ended in an ugly divorce with no financial support. I knew I was more than just a pretty face. Embracing my comfort with numbers and a desire to make a positive impact in the lives of others, I started a career as a financial consultant. It was a natural fit. I was excited about my new career, but the environment of misogyny and brotopia was less than encouraging and, in some ways, even toxic. While I was great at what I did, I was not treated respectfully by my peers. I eventually began to realize if this is how the industry treated me as a successful woman in finance, how were they treating women as clients? This lit a fire in me.
As I began working with more and more women, I saw their lack of confidence in investing. While they were all smart and successful, they were never emboldened or given a voice in the process. So, I began focusing on what was important to them as women. I encouraged them to ask questions in a supportive environment where they could learn. That’s when they realize they are more capable than they think, and their confidence starts to emerge.
That’s why my true purpose is to provide a safe environment where every woman feels acknowledged, appreciated, and respected. Where they are encouraged to ask questions, engage in purposeful conversations about their life and money while they build the fearlessness they need to make wise financial decisions for their life.
