MISSION STATEMENT

A Commitment to Financial Literacy

To educate, enlighten and empower people with the information and tools they need to make better financial decisions and to gain control of their financial future.

We understand the challenges families face today because we all have families of our own.

Managing debt, saving for college and retirement, and planning for the unplanned can all be overwhelming and confusing. Our commitment is to utilize all of our resources to help you achieve your goals.

We think “outside of the box” in our approach to teaching financial literacy and strategies to create and preserve wealth, rather than building on the agendas of financial institutions, Wall Street and the government.

Financial literacy and the application of that knowledge has the power to transform lives…that’s the reason that it is at the heart of everything we do.

Originally from Switzerland, I joined the financial services industry in 2009. After learning many financial lessons the hard way, I became very passionate about educating people, especially women, on the importance of financial literacy and awareness.
Over the years, I had the opportunity to conduct hundreds of workshops on fianancial matters, educating thousands of individuals on Finances 101, college planning, alternative investments, and creative savings and retirement strategies outside of the typical financial planning “box.”
Besides being a passionate speaker and empowering individuals with financial knowledge, I have been a guest speaker at industry conventions and on various local radio shows. As an avid learner, I continually attend summits for industry leaders nationwide, and have shared my knowledge and expertise on stage as a panelist. I have been a certified financial education instructor with the National Financial Educators Council since 2015. I believe, “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra!”

Prior to this industry, I worked for LA Unified School District for 18 years.  I was a teacher, an Instructional Mathematics Coach, and a School Coordinator.  After getting my Masters in Administration, I thought I would end my career as a retired principal.  My career path changed as I transferred my skills and pursued my passion for educating people about their finances and retirement.  This began after I analyzed my own pension and retirement accounts.  I felt empowered with the information and gained valuable insights into the financial industry that many bankers, Wall Street brokers, and advisors usually won’t share.  My purpose now is to help empower others (especially women and single parents like myself) and share these secrets I learned about smarter and safer money strategies.  For example, how ANYONE can create their own personal pension – just like what teachers, law enforcement, and county employees get when they retire.  I’m very grateful to be in a position where I’m able to continue my journey to educate and help families throughout the country achieve financial security, plan for the unexpected, and have peace of mind so they don’t ever have to worry about running out of money after they retire or stress out about their financial situation.

With over 30 years in customer service, I have built a foundation of caring for my clients’ varied needs.  I understand every individual is unique and will not be at the same place when it comes to their knowledge and financial situation. Having spent 12 years working in claims with one of the largest auto insurance companies in the U.S., I know all too well that stressful situations take a delicate hand, as well as, an ability to break down and explain solutions to specific problems. It was in 2016 that I was introduced to the financial services industry.  I learned how money worked and how I could utilize the strategies used for decades by the wealthy to grow and protect people’s hard-earned savings from stock market losses and taxes. From this knowledge came my desire to share what I learned with as many families as possible. I deepened my knowledge of retirement strategies and transitioned out of claims into a successful business in financial education. I have educated hundreds of families on safe and effective retirement strategies that work.  With every family I help, my passion continues. This growing passion put me in the path of the GOALL Program in 2018 which has allowed me to help more business owners, employees and their families than I ever dreamed possible.

In 2013, I decided to become an independent Life & Health insurance agent for the sole purpose of helping not only my friends and family, but also people who could benefit from my services. Soon after, I completed my Medicare certification and became a Certified Senior Advisor.  From there, my business exponentially grew through referrals. I take great pride in providing excellent service to my clients by making sure their calls are returned promptly and all their questions are answered explicitly. As a wife and mother of two, I understand the value of Peace of Mind. Now that I have the ideal coverage in place and my family is safeguarded from unexpected events and crisis in the future, I finally have that peace of mind. It disturbed me to think of the many years I had insufficient coverage. I have seen too many people who have lost their entire life-savings to pay for unexpected medical bills and unforeseen catastrophes. My goal is to provide you with the most optimal insurance coverage that will safeguard you and your family for many years to come so you can retire worry free!

I am a member of National Ethics Association and National Association of Professional Agents. I have a strong background in business and finance. I was responsible for building multi-million dollar lines of clothing with apparel companies and worked extensively with companies such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Macy’s, JCP, and The Gap. After the major market drop in 2008, I noticed how many people and their businesses and retirement accounts were seriously affected. I began to translate my financial strengths into retirement planning to better prepare individuals, retirees, pre-retirees, executives, and professionals for future risks they may face in retirement. My current practice involves predominantly retirement planning, as well as designing tax reduction plans. I work with my clients to increase their retirement income and reduce their taxes along with asset growth. In the world of financial planning, I have developed plans that have made a substantial impact in terms of improving the financial lives of individuals and families. I enjoy helping my clients create a better retirement through having more money to enjoy and realize their retirement dreams.
