Are you ready to simplify and organize your finances, while eliminating your money stress? Financial coaching can help! Through financial coaching you will let go of past shame and guilt, find a clear path forward, and ultimately change your relationship with money.
Hi, my name is Kimbree and I am a Financial Coach!
I teach people to manage their money with confidence and help them eliminate their financial stress.
My passion for finance began by accident as I tried to budget my way through graduate school. I spent my days studying economics and my nights and weekends figuring out how my husband and I could make it on our limited incomes. From the trial and error I experienced, I learned that it wasn’t just the decisions I made that mattered. It was also the information behind the decisions. After receiving my Masters Degree in International Economics and Development, I looked for opportunities to expand my financial knowledge. This led me to earning a Masters Certificate in Family Financial Planning and becoming an Accredited Financial Counselor®.
I love all things personal finance and want to give others the knowledge and confidence to make the best financial decisions they can. Managing money with confidence is something that we can all learn to do. I'd love to help you organize and simply your finances and keep more of the money that you make!

Before I started working with Kimbree, I had struggled for years getting my financial ducks in a row. I always seemed to have too much debt and not enough money. I struggled with credit card debt and I had no system for paying bills or budgeting. I had tried different methods for getting it under control, but nothing ever seemed to stick. The professionals that I worked with didn’t seem invested or provided a cookie-cutter approach that didn’t lend itself to my unique situation. From the very first session, Kimbree worked with me to develop a simple action plan that yielded big results.
I recently consulted with Kimbree about starting and managing student loan repayment as I was finishing up my PhD and feeling overwhelmed about loans from multiple universities and servicers. Kimbree helped me to understand my situation, the available resources for managing the loans and payments, as well as strategies and options for dealing with the debt. She was really knowledgeable, easy to talk to and helped me to get a grip on my loan situation. I highly recommend working with her.
highly recommend Illuminate Financial. Kimbree has been an invaluable help to my husband and me as we manage our finances today and plan for our future. She asks good questions to understand her clients' goals and offers sound, practical advice about how to achieve them. After talking with Kimbree, I have a better understanding of my finances and feel empowered to make good financial decisions moving forward.
When our first son was born, we knew we wanted to set up a 529 college savings plan for him, but we didn't know where to start. We felt overwhelmed with the research, and we didn't have a lot of spare time to learn on our own. We knew that Kimbree was incredibly knowledgeable and well-versed in the world of college savings, so we looked to her for guidance. Kimbree was able to breakdown our options in a very clear and easy to understand way.
