Hello and welcome to Budget Brain Consulting! I'm the Chief "Budget Brainiac" in charge, and I'm dedicated to helping you tackle your biggest financial concerns!
I'm passionate about helping people manage their finances more effectively - in order to break the weekly cycle of broke. I do this for clients in ways that are not only centered around their core values, but are practical and based upon industry standards. I'm a military wife with more than "ten years of service," and the mother of three wonderful girls. Although, I'm a native of California, we're currently living in the Dallas-Fort Worth area - and loving every moment here! In addition, I'm a healthy kale enthusiast that enjoys wearing flip-flops, when I'm not working as a wife, mom, or financial coach.
I look forward to getting to know you and assisting with your personal financial planning.
