Christine G.
New York

"Christine has literally changed my life. I have always been told by family and friends that I am awful with money. After my husband left me I was terrified I would not be able to run my finances. I felt so much shame. With her help, suggestions and her budgeting system, I have paid off 3 debts and will have another one paid off in the coming months. I have more money in savings than I have ever had. I will also be debt free in less than 5 years. Give her a chance!”

Emily and Dave P. Pennsylvania

"Christine was absolutely wonderful to work with. I would recommend her, without hesitation, to family or friends looking to organize their finances with purpose and intention. In addition, she is a truly kind and compassionate person who really cares about helping people reach their financial goals.”

Stacey T. Massachusetts

About Christine Spiak

Hey there! 👋 I’m on a mission to make managing your money as enjoyable as a hike in the mountains or a paddle boarding adventure! 

🏡 For 11 years I was a stay-at-home mom, juggling our family finances while raising our daughter and keeping the household afloat. Money talks between my husband and I were more like heated debates, and we often felt like we took one step forward only to take two steps back.

💰 But then in 2017 everything changed. We learned how to create healthy money habits, said goodbye to our debt, built up a 6-month emergency fund, and even paid off our mortgage. The cherry on top, now, instead of butting heads, we’re on the same page, dreaming big and reaching our goals together!

😊 I know first hand how transformative it is to be free of money stress and that’s why I am so passionate about helping you achieve the same thing.

🐶 When I’m not geeking out over money matters or guiding people with their money, you can find me soaking up the simple joys of life. Traveling and spending time with my family tops my list.  I enjoy walking our dog Comet, hiking and paddle boarding around Central New York and the Adirondacks.

📚 I’m a foodie too who enjoys being in the kitchen, and a lover of reading; lounging on the beach with a good book is one of my favorite guilty pleasures.  I like gardening, hot yoga, and family traditions too! 

💖 I also want to give love to the incredible women who’ve got my back through all of life’s ups and downs. Without their support, I don’t know where I’d be.

🤓 I’ve been coaching professionally for 5 years now and am a certified Ramsey Solutions Financial Coach. I believe in continuing to strengthen my skills as a professional financial coach and do that through the Financial Coach Academy. I love this profession and bring a variety of methodologies, strategies and solutions to my coaching to help you get the very best results.

🌎 I’m also committed to giving back to our community; I’m a Board Member and Treasurer for the Mohawk Valley Business Women’s Network , serve as Vice President of Education for CNY BizTalkers, a Toastmasters International Club and I’m the Event Registration Coordinator for The Genesis Group.  

If you’re ready to turn your financial struggles into a peaceful journey that leads to results and bigger dreams, I’d love to be your guide and support you along the way.
