Susan is an expert at financial education guiding, teaching and educating people on creating a sound financial plan so ultimately her clients experience financial empowerment.

Susan believes that it is her life experience that allows her to connect with her clients and be of great value. She has been both married, been a step parent and has raised a child alone as a single mother.

Having been in a 3 year legal custody battle, she has personal insight of how the legal system works with regards to court orders, lawyers and the emotions one experiences going through a divorce or custody dispute. This process has give her deep insight in to how the easily it can be to be overwhelmed by the legal system, the jargon that is used as well as the huge costs a person suffers financially, emotionally and physically going through this process. She is able to understand the importance of the wording of documents in a divorce or custody order and how important it is to think about the long term implications to your life both emotionally and financially before the signing of these documents. Her advice on which insurance products should be included in these documents secures the financial well being of both parents and their children. So often there is a fight for maintenance and alimony but no provision is made on the death, disability, illness, or the possibility of either partner re-marrying and changing beneficiaries on life insurance policies. This creates anxiety for all parties and has often in her experience lead to financial catastrophes.

She has incorporated her own life’s experience and into her coaching and financial practice.

“I create a world of financial success by educating and inspiring others.”
