Catholic Charities Volunteer of the Year
"As a volunteer for Save First Financial Wellness, Catholic Charities has been very supportive for me: providing training, doing research, and connecting me with helpful resources to share with my clients. Working with Catholic Charities, and most importantly my clients, has been a real joy and most satisfying personal experience. I have found this to be time very well spent and derive much personal satisfaction in seeing my clients succeed."
Making the World a Better Place, One Coach at a Time
"I really enjoy the experience of coaching at Save First. It's one thing to write a check to your favorite charity. It's quite another (better!) to work one-on-one with a real person who I can actually assist. Witnessing the improvements in their life that I had a small role in is heartwarming. Everyone needs a second chance and Save First provides that. As a retired US Forest Service employee, I’m happy that I can keep serving people in our community."
Everyone Can Benefit From Having Someone on Their Side
“It has been my pleasure to work with Save First clients over the past three years and guide them throughout their financial journey. It has been extremely satisfying working with clients and helping them realize their financial goals. Life can be overwhelming at times, so we can all use a little bit of encouragement and guidance to help us on our path. My goal is to empower clients to manage their finances and put them in charge of their destiny. I especially enjoy working with women -- understanding the challenges they face, setting short and long term goals, and helping them get on their path to a successful financial future.”
