I help military service women and veterans regain control and conquer the battle over their finances so they can live life freely.
PLACEHOLDER: This is the place for you to tell your site visitors a little bit about you and your services.
Dr. Ann James, ED.D, AFC
I believe financial freedom is a journey, not a destination. My purpose is to educate and equip my clients to renew their mindset, regain control over their behavior, and reclaim confidence in their ability to manage money so that they can live life freely. I help you to see that with persistence and perseverance, you can begin telling your money what to do instead of the lack of money telling you what you cannot afford to do. In addition to dishing out doses of tough love, I meet my clients at their point of need, while consistently providing non-judgemental and unbiased guidance each step of the way on their journey to financial freedom.

Freedom Success Stories
I feel so blessed to have crossed paths with Dr. Ann. She came into my life at a time where I was going through MAJOR transitions that included a divorce and bankruptcy. Even after filing Chapter 7, I was still left with a mountain of debt and a new lifestyle that I had to manage.
Dr. Ann proved herself to be an invaluable coach and guide. She held my hand through the process and did not judge nor condemn me. She DID, however, challenge me to be "the best me" when making financial decisions. I am not gonna lie, in the beginning, it was tough - just like with anything else new. But over time it became easy, even second nature. Because of her expertise, I was able to soundly decide how, when, and where to appropriate my funds.
Her method opened up a whole new world of freedom for me where I no longer lived check to check (I AM on a fixed income). I always knew the state of my finances. In fact, last year I traveled more than I ever have WITHOUT credit and totally debt-free. I still apply the principles that Dr. Ann taught me and continue to live a debt-free life where I actually have money available for emergencies, travel, and random expenses. I highly recommend Dr. Ann to anyone who wants to control their finances instead of their finances controlling them.”
