About Terina Bainter
My passion for Financial Coaching started when I worked in the banking industry for the first 10 years of my professional life. I started as a part-time teller at the age of 17 and worked my way up to an Internal Loan Officer, where I consistently closed 1.4 million dollars in home loans each month. It was so rewarding being able to help my clients save money and reduce the financial burden and physical stress that was created by their monthly bills.
Working with my loan clients made me wish that there was a program to help them bring awareness to how their spending may have contributed to their financial situation and the physical stress it created. I wanted to prevent them from getting back to that situation in the future. But before I could act on that, motherhood was calling my name.
I transitioned out of banking and into full time motherhood for 12 years before becoming a Professional Organizer and Financial Coach. Going from a dual-income family to a single-income family with a new baby can really throw your finances whacky, especially when you or your spouse/partner does NOT get paid vacation, holiday, and, at the time, sick pay.
Creating a budget that supported our complex income, learning to become creative, and becoming aware of the shopping traps we can all fall into helped me navigate this new role and lifestyle.
With my knowledge and experience gained from managing money in both my personal and professional life for over 32 years, I have chosen to operate according to the Financial Coach Academy system. Where I work alongside my clients to teach them the steps to create and maintain a budget, formulate a plan to pay off debt, and obtain financial confidence.
Ultimately, my goal is to help you improve your life and save you money by reducing the anxiety, time, and expenses that your finances are causing. Learning the skills to manage your finances and paperwork is the perfect place to begin your journey!
Together we will create and apply a personalized budget, uncover, and work through any underlying money thoughts and beliefs, create and implement a personalized plan that shows the changes (big and small) that you can make so that you get to where you want to be – Financial Security!
