Debt can be a huge burden, and it’s not always easy to know how to get out of it. But the good news is that with the right guidance and accountability, you can make real progress towards becoming debt-free.
As your financial coach, I’m here to help you do just that.
We’ll start by looking at your current financial situation and identifying where you can make changes. From there, we’ll work together to create a custom financial plan that takes into account your unique goals and lifestyle.
Whether you need to earn more, spend less, or both, I’ll be there to offer guidance and support every step of the way. We’ll also focus on building up your savings, improving your credit score, and becoming more financially educated so that you can create a healthy financial future for yourself.
With my help, you can say goodbye to debt and hello to financial freedom. Let’s get started on this journey together.

As a DINK couple (Dual Income, No Kids), we had DOZENS of financial goals but lacked the focus and skills to prioritize them. Our finances felt overwhelming. We signed up for a power session with Leila, where she showed us how to systematically pursue all our goals! She showered us with tools and insights, streamlined our finances, and broke down our budget line by line!
Leila is a brilliant coach - dedicated, creative and kind. She didn’t judge our spending habits and even added spending into our budget that mattered the most to us (like food and travel). Today, after working with Leila (and watching her YouTube videos), we are still on track to max out our retirement accounts, pay off a 5-figure student loan, save for a European trip, and grow our house down payment. Most importantly, our budget gives us the freedom to enjoy our life. Dan can still buy his daily guilt-free sodas. And Connie, with Leila’s encouragement, is working on a novel (and getting up the nerve to start a YouTube channel!). We only had two sessions with Leila, but they won’t be our last!
Working with Leila has been an absolutely fantastic experience. With unfaltering positivity, she has carefully helped me plan my debt payoff journey with an eye toward my retirement which I have neglected for many years. She is obviously passionate about helping others improve their finances, and is able to do so in an incredibly encouraging and non-judgemental way. Leila’s ability to create a safe and productive space to communicate, make mistakes, and re-route has proven to be just the thing I needed to stick with this process of learning how to manage my finances. I just can’t recommend her enough!
Leila was an exceptional coach. She is very devoted to personal finance and just living a better debt free life. Before I started my journey or even thought about it I watched her videos just out of curiosity and I quickly found myself paying more attention to my debt and trying to get rid of my consumer debt and student loans.
During the 3 short months working with her I was able to pay off $3,457 of my car loan and my credit score went up 18 points. I didn't realize how much money I had left over on a month to month basis after bills until she had me track everything on a spreadsheet. A habit I will definitely keep doing. I am very grateful for her time and effort.
I had the pleasure to work with Leila for the past 3 months and it made me realize how unorganized I was about my expenses.
I thought I was already on track towards my debt free journey but Leila helped me make real progress. What I liked the most about the experience is that she made me do things that were out of my comfort zone but helped me so much at the end. I finally felt like I was in control and felt accomplished with every little bit of progress.
Her tracking and organization method helped me a whole lot! Leila never made me feel bad about my financial situation. She helped me focus on the present instead of mourning my past financial mistakes. She not only understood my position but helped me get ahead of the game. If you were to ask me if I would recommend Leila as a financial coach my answer would be: 100% YES!
Working with Leila for the last seven months has completely changed the way I view money and spending. Prior to working with Leila, I was incurring more debt month after month. I used to dread checking my bank account because I knew it never looked good, but now I truly enjoy checking my bank account. It’s exciting to see my debt decreasing month after month and at the same time to see my savings increasing.
Since I started working with Leila, I have paid off thousands of dollars of debt, tripled my emergency fund, reduced my annual spending by thousands of dollars, and I have learned to prepare for the unexpected while prioritizing my financial goals. Through this time, I have not touched my credit card once, but I never felt restricted. Before working with Leila, I was shopping all the time and spending money on a whim. Leila’s supportive and straight forward approach got me to focus on my true goals, making it easy to reduce my spending and work towards the things I genuinely want, like traveling and saving for my future business.
For the first time in my life, I felt like I was in control of my money. But it went beyond just money, as soon as I started to get my finances in order, things started to fall into place in other areas of my life. I am experiencing so much less stress now and I know that I have the tools and habits needed to create a successful financial future for myself. Leila has had my back though this whole process and was always there to cheer me on. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to work with her!
What I DON’T Do
I am not a financial advisor, expert, or professional. However, I do have a vast understanding of debt and finances and a lot of experience with my own money journey.
With that being said, I will not:
- Be providing investing advice
- Do the work for you (I don’t need any account info, I won’t make calls, etc.)
- Force you to do anything you’re not comfortable with
As I mentioned, personal finance is personal. At the end of the day, it is up to you to take action on saving and paying off debt.
There are a few requirements because I want to ensure I am able to help you.
- Must live in the USA and use USD (some situational exceptions)
- Your main goal = getting out of debt, saving, budgeting
- You must have an income coming in
- You must be dedicated, open, and punctual
- And available for video calls M-Th 5pm-8pm ET (my availability may change but I am quite flexible)
*Payment is due in full before our first call.
For every person you refer that signs up for either coaching package, you will receive $50 cash!
