After 25 years in the financial industry, having raised five children and endured my own experience with divorce, I became a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst and trained mediator. I founded CSM Divorce Solutions to provide a place where women could go to be heard, to release the emotions of this tumultuous time, and have their financial portraits explained to them in order to start moving forward with a plan. I partnered with Karen Chellew to form Divorce U Solutions to provide more comprehensive services for women going through the divorce process. Karen shares my passion for helping women through the divorce process with her added expertise in the legal field. From knowing where to start, putting together a much needed divorce team, finding the right attorney and learning how to budget your support and manage finances after divorce, we now provide all the services I’d hoped for when I was going through my divorce. When all is said and done, I do believe in marriage. I also believe in living happily despite your marital status. Things may be different, but #UwillbeOK!
