Meet Jen!

I'm a Brooklyn based mom of two, a financial counselor, a former doula, and I’ve been self-employed my entire adult life. My passion is working with parents and self-employed people to implement financial strategies so they can live with financial confidence, less stress, and meet their lifelong goals.

My background is in the wellness industry. I was a licensed massage therapist and birth doula for almost 15 years. I’ve helped hundreds of families prepare for the birth of their baby during pregnancy, and the transition into parenthood postpartum. I run a doula collective in NYC, Baby Caravan, where I manage a team of over 50 doulas supporting families. I now support self-employed folks and parents as a financial counselor, helping people build financial plans to meet their financial needs and objectives.

My journey to becoming a financial counselor began with planning my own maternity leaves. The first leave I planned the wrong way and went back to my business way too early. I took everything I learned from that experience and carefully planned a self-funded 4 month maternity leave with my daughter in 2019. Those early months with her created some of the best experiences and memories of my life, and I believe every parent should have the opportunity to do the same.

Becoming a parent fundamentally reframed my relationship with finances after the responsibilities of parenthood really started to sink in. I realized that my financial decisions no longer just impacted me, but were setting the foundation for my children’s future. This led me to become a certified financial counselor so that I could help others build those essential foundations for themselves and their families.

Between planning two of my own parental leaves, all my years of experience supporting families during the childbearing years as a doula, and my skills as a financial counselor, I’ve created supportive, compassionate, and effective programs for self-employed people and small business owners to create enjoyable and financially sound parental leaves and build more sustainable financial futures.

I’m here to help you make your financial aspirations a reality!
