Our stories give us the power to become the author of our past and future experiences and unleash our truth. Every woman has a story, and this one is mine.
When I was in my 20’s, I found myself engulfed in a volatile marriage marked by mental, emotional, and physical abuse. The relationship finally imploded, thankfully, after a violent episode that left me broken and my abuser imprisoned. At the time, I had no job, no child support, and only a meager monthly stipend to keep my family afloat. I did not know who to turn to for guidance or how to pick up the pieces of my life. I felt completely lost and isolated.
That was over 20 years ago. As painful as those dark days were, my divorce from my abuser ultimately saved my life in more ways than one. As I continued my journey to heal and find purpose, I felt led to help other women; a way to take my “mess” and make it my “message.” I wanted to become for other women the person I desperately needed but could not find. My experiences helped me develop strength, not wounds; I remain determined to help other women transition from trauma to triumph.
Through my work with my financial advising firm, I have been able to help hundreds of individuals manage their toughest seasons victoriously, such as their divorce, loss of a loved one, and career transitions. As a Transformational Wealth Coach and through my “Smart Money Gal,” platform, I help women find their financial confidence, reclaim their power, and embrace a life of prosperity.
I am blessed to share that others in my community and across the nation have honored my work and found value in my mission. Some of my accolades include: 2013-2016, 2020 Women’s Choice Award for Financial Advisors; Kentucky Colonel Award for civic leadership from the Commonwealth of Kentucky; 2013 Inductee into the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors; 2013 Acquisition International Financial Advisory Firm of the Year-USA; and multi-year award winner in the Best of Atlanta Business Hall of Fame from the city of Atlanta.
I have had the incredible opportunity to co-author a Best-Selling book with Jack Canfield, creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. I have also been cited for my knowledge and have appeared on sources such as ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, The Boston Globe, Newsweek, Fortune, and Forbes.
Although many have found inspiration within my story, ultimately, chasing someone else’s version of success is empty. At the very core, my passion is helping women stand in their power and write their own story. Through my trans-formative programs and private sessions, my clients achieve fiscal confidence and lay the foundations for a life of power, prosperity, and purpose.
Money and financial confidence are cornerstones that can catapult success in every area of life: lifestyle, goals, relationships, and health. When we work together, change is possible – and it starts with you.
