About our Winners —
Our winners have been selected and are in the process of receiving their makeovers. Curious to know what’s in store? Take a look below for a sneak peak of the financial transformations taking place:
Lucy works part time in the Bay Area, California. She is in her 20s and kicking off her financial life, so she’s focused on getting things in order for the next 5 years. Lucy’s monetary goals include acquiring the skills to easily budget her income and start saving for larger purchases like a home or travel. She’ll be working with Patricia Jennerjohn on her financial makeover.
Sarah is a working mother of two young children who lives in the New York area. She and her husband James hope that Andy Tilp can provide them with a financial plan that helps them establish healthy budget habits, manage their savings for an emergency fund & their kids’ future education, and get on the right track for saving for retirement. Andy is confident he can help Sarah and James secure a bright financial future for their children.
Jack and his wife are nearing retirement. They are looking for Delia Fernandez to provide guidance on if they’ve saved enough for retirement and how long their savings will last them. In addition to juggling multiple properties, they’re also concerned about options for long-term care to make sure everything is taken care of as they get older.
