Liz has a passion for helping people discover the joy and peace that comes from taking control of their money and making progress on their financial goals.  She understands the journey because she’s been there.  Over time she has become an experienced guide, able to inject hope into someone's financial situation.

Liz retired from San Mateo County as the Finance Manager/Fiscal Officer of Public Health.  She was responsible for the department's budget and finances.  She has also been providing financial coaching to individuals, couples, and small businesses for over 15 years.


In addition, her husband is self-employed so they have had to deal with the ups and downs and uncertainties that accompany having a family member self-employed and running a small business. 


Liz enjoys swimming, walking, reading, sewing, writing, traveling, and hanging out with her husband.  She and her husband volunteer at and serve on the Board of Directors of Daybreak Camp, a Christian camping facility in Felton, California; mentor couples; and volunteer with Family Life’s Weekend to Remember.
