Credit Repair & Management, Mortgages, Loans and Smart Money Mentor
I grew up in a home where every dollar mattered, and we knew it! As a kid you come to believe more stuff means more happiness. Right? Well, not so much…
In my teen years, my Father’s business took off and it was in that very abundance we sought, that our family fell apart. My life changed completely when at 17, I became both a Father and Husband.
To feed my young family, I picked up an entry level job in finance, that would later define the rest of my career. I got to see all the different ways people use money. Some of them good, but many were not so good.
It would take many more mistakes before I figured out what worked and what were empty shiny promises that simply left my family in worse shape financially.
28 years later, I’m an accomplished professional in areas of consumer finance, banking, credit and home loans.
Currently, as an Area Manager for OneMain Financial, I’m using my talents in the under-served credit community, helping families get back on track and realize a brighter financial future, for themselves and their children.

Dreams & Goals, Saving, Fun Budgets, Debt. Legacy and Smart Money Mentor
As the eldest child of a humble, yet proud and dedicated military family, Debbie grew up learning first-hand the value of making your money stretch…as well as understanding how quickly impulsive choices can get you trapped.
In her late 20s,, Debbie’s world turned upside down within 72 hours. Her husband was laid off from his construction job on a Wednesday… and then the plant that she had worked at for 5 years closed the doors on Friday. Poof…just like that. We both lost our jobs the same week…with four kids at home to feed.
The first child in her blue-collar family to finish college in her early 30s, she knows it really is possible to change your circumstances and realize your dreams…one step and one decision at a time. But it takes caring support and guidance along the way…
With over 20 years as a licensed CPA and money wellness mentor, her passion to help families learn and grow in their core financial knowledge is the perfect backdrop for teaching practical, FUN and financially sound money habits…for kids as well as adults!
