Financial education teacher, speaker, author, money coach and entrepreneur.

Hi and welcome.

If you’re checking out ways to improve any aspect of your life and you want a little coaching to get you where you want to, you’ve come to the right place.

I wanted to give you a bit of background about me. I own two companies…yes, two: Creative Wealth Intl., LLC and Creative Carpet Repair.

Creative Wealth Intl., LLC

Along with a team of people passionate about financial literacy and making the world a better place for everyone in it, I created of Camp Millionaire, The Money Game, Moving Out! for Teens and a small host of other books and products. My goal was to create financial education programs, curriculums and products that were Simple, Fun, Experiential and Effective. By the sound of the testimonials we gets, we’ve accomplished that goal.

I also created Celebrating Women and Wealth, a workshop designed for the special financial needs of women but after one program, realized that 1) doing live workshops were great but too much work at this age and 2) I prefer to do individual financial and life coaching with women because I can see the great successes they make in a very short amount of time.

Over the years, I has coached many, mostly women, to financial enlightenment…this means they finally know where they are financially, they have a good idea where they are going financially and they have a clue how to get there :-). Sometimes just having a clue is a great step in the right direction!

My coaching business is called Success Calls because, well, I believe everyone’s success IS calling…you just have to learn how to listen and act.

I also believe that we are all experts at something and/or can become an expert at something. I am an expert in teaching the basic financial principles, habits and thought patterns everyone needs to be financially responsible for themselves and I do it in a way that is engaging, empowering and fun.

I am the author of The Ultimate Allowance and Your Money Jars and co-author of Rocks to Riches.

Creative Carpet Repair

Believe it or not, this is a national carpet repair business with hundreds of carpet repair experts around the country. I helped my boyfriend, Steve Gordon, start and grow this business starting around 2006. In 2017, he wanted to go a different direction (become a ceramic artists) so I took over the business and bought it from him. Not a day goes by that I don’t use my business and financial skills to work on Creative Carpet Repair.

By the way, the photo to the right at the beach is with the love of my life, Jasmine. She is a Newdle, a cross between a Newfoundland and a Poodle. I never knew the breed existed and I’m grateful each day for her presence in my life. She brings me much joy.

I continue to have a zillion ideas every day and I enjoy figuring out where I am going to put my energy on a day to day basis.
