Gold Coast Chapter Past President
We asked her a few questions to get the interview started.
How do you want to help people financially? “To prepare for the future in the next 5 years and then years out into retirement: encourage living within a budget today and knowing what it took to get to today, what should and could you be doing presently to make planning for the future more doable.”
What makes you unique? “I am an educator and speak from personal experience. I would rather clients see the big picture of what they share with me are their hopes and dreams; share with them instances and occurrences that I have had to assist others with and use such to help them understand how important planning and preparing is.”
