She has been a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) investor for the past 4 years, and has been involved in multiple financial markets, with stocks being the most significant of her success. Her lifelong goal is to build generational wealth and attain financial freedom, so that she can live her best life, buy back time and continue to help women do the exact same.

I believe that the best way to financial freedom is through blending both finance and wellness, to meet your needs. I took major steps to improve my overall health, which led me to make better financial decisions over time. Taking a wholesome and holistic approach at how you live your life, is key to how you will attract and manage your money.

I focus on helping you break the bad habits and help you to build up the good ones. This way I can provide you with the keys to success that will unlock the door to ultimate financial freedom and stability.

When I am not overly obsessing over the next best stock and learning the various financial markets, you could catch me almost anywhere! I love spending time with family and friends, eating out (or eating-in), live concerts, travelling, writing poetry and ending my night with a good solid book.
