"I dwell in possibility."

Emily Dickinson


Elaine felt honored and was rewarded for helping women enhance their knowledge and understanding, and therefore empowering them to higher levels.  

As Elaine grew her practice, the corporate management offered her a position as Branch Manager. Elaine took this opportunity to focus on hiring and training Financial Advisors.  As a struggling small Branch office, Elaine quickly grew it to a successful award-winning Branch. 

It was then, that Elaine realized her passion was in helping others grow and achieve their dreams. She began to teach others in the firm and was soon coaching and training other Branch Managers and Top Advisors. From there, Elaine became an independent coach for elite financial professionals.
