I help people achieve their goals through confidence, self-love and financial freedom. I work with individuals providing a framework for a personal finance "tune-up". We will review your financial house, define goals and outline opportunities for you to save or make financially advantageous choices, and overall give you more confidence and awareness of the role your finances can play in moving you towards your broader life goals!
I also work with corporate professionals that manage a corporate business unit that want to build confidence in reading financial reports and managing the financial elements of their role. The result: financial fierceness and competence in the boardroom.
Sessions with me are casual, open and completely confidential. All matters financial are often a private and vulnerable area for individuals and I create a safe space for you to learn and grow.
Hi! I’m Michelle, a Certified Professional Accountant and JRNI certified coach with over 20 years of corporate finance experience.
I am obsessed with personal financial wellness and acumen. I believe that money does not make you happy, but it can set you free. And by that I mean, it can certainly be an enabler in moving towards a purposeful and happy life.
Five years ago, I was climbing the corporate ladder trying to fill my cup with big jobs, bigger paycheques and accomplishments, thinking I’d feel like enough, and that my life would be happier as a result. Unknowingly, I was struggling quietly with feelings of my own self-worth and had been for most of my life. If I got the next big job or designation people would love me, which may help me love myself more, right? Since then, I’ve been clearing all of the debris from around my heart to discover a place of vulnerability and self-love. I can say now with complete honesty that I love my whole self - even the parts that don’t feel as easy to love - and my life has become profoundly more abundant in every way!
When I’m not teaching financial fierceness, I am a ferocious traveller, a doting dog mom, and an avid cyclist that loves the freedom and exhilaration of being on two wheels with the wind in her face.
