“When people know different, they do different. I love helping people learn how to align their spending with their life goals, so they can live their own authentic lives.”
Christine is refreshing and open-minded, yet trustworthy and practical. She is like a personal trainer for her clients and their money—helping people strengthen their financial know-how and revitalize their lives.
Christine’s interest in financial planning began in her personal life. She and her husband were managing their finances well enough; however, they never really had a focused plan. Every so often Christine would find her mind spinning, wondering if they would ultimately have enough. She also knew many smart and accomplished people who were struggling with daily money management, refinancing houses for “stuff” that once seemed important, and accepting debt as an inescapable fact of life.
There had to be another way, but Christine had no idea where to turn for honest, unbiased advice. So she proceeded alone. The more she learned about creating personal financial peace, the more she was inspired to give the same power to others.
At the time, Christine had been working for over 10 years as a chemical engineer, and was constantly searching for a more satisfying way to improve people’s lives. Having a thirst for the most relevant and recent methods of financial education, she completed training as a money coach and never looked back. She now experiences pure enjoyment witnessing her clients’ successes, and truly believes that financial serenity is achievable for everyone.
To sum up our money coaching experience: we know exactly where every dollar is being spent!
We always considered ourselves accountable, but just didn’t know how to translate these qualities into managing our money flow in the same way. Now we know what we are doing! Our goals are more defined, and we planned them as a team thanks to Christine’s guidance. Having them written down with a plan to support each goal is part of walking the walk, and not just talking the talk. Also, our relationship with money is better because it is no longer a wedge between us. I’m more at ease with money because we are controlling it. We manage our money, and not vice versa.
Thank you for showing us the light at the end of our tunnel. Having moved back to Canada after several years, we were clearly lost in managing our money flow in a new economy. Without hesitation, your advice and expertise have empowered and energized our family. We have a renewed sense of autonomy and feel like we are finally managing our money like adults!
I would not hesitate to recommend your services. I think everyone can benefit from a money-makeover. It is just too easy to get stuck in a rut or routine or poor habits; so I think a fresh look from professionals such as yourselves can provide the a-ha! Moment that many of us need to make personal money management more efficient and less stressful. We should all strive for a level of comfort, if not pride, in how we are managing our everyday money flow…why? Because we deserve it!
Thank you for your extreme patience and excellent service. We wish you and your team continued success.

For several years, my wife and I had made repeated attempts to devise a strategy for managing our finances, that took into consideration both our immediate needs and long term aspirations. It seemed we were constantly modifying our plans to accommodate our inability to meet our own goals. We finally sought out professional help from Christine which has since proven to be the best financial decision we have made to date. Christine’s ability to explain complex concepts in clear language, in combination with her empathetic nature and sound knowledge of money management, proved effective in helping us realize what is important to us, and provided us with a plan that was both realistic and with which we felt satisfied. As a consequence, we highly recommend working with Christine to help realize your financial goals.

Before having a money coach I was always stressed out about money and I had no idea how to get out of the financial mess I put myself in. When I started speaking with Christine she helped me feel ok about my situation instead of feeling ashamed. That is what made it easy to talk to her about everything. Christine helped me have a new way about thinking about money. I can still save and have freedom as well. She puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable. She is very detailed and thorough with her questions and spreadsheets. I can see now exactly how much money I need each month and now I know how much I can spend. I have learned so much from Christine and will continue to do so.
