Hello, I am LeeAnne Chan and I created Living Lucrum, LLC for one sole purpose. To help you create your best financial life. I have started my career with a BS in Economics. I then continued towards my specialization as a Master’s Certified Family Financial Planner. I will finish the complete master’s program in Family Financial Planning and Financial Therapy in December 2020. In addition to my collegiate education, I am also a member of the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE), Financial Therapy Association (FTA), Financial Planners Association (FPA).
I wasn’t always this educated and confident in my abilities though. Before I became a coach and therapist, I struggled. I was in a marriage that was emotionally escalating dangerously fast. I didn’t think that I would be able to leave though because, after nearly 13 years, he finally broke me. I quit my job. I didn’t have any friends. I couldn’t go anywhere without it becoming a major fight. I couldn’t even spend my own money (when I had it) on bills without being accused of taking away from him and his needs. One day, I woke up and decided that I no longer wanted to live in this kind of fear. That is when I finally left. My children and I lost our home (we moved in with my parents ) and I couldn’t find employment for quite a while because it was in the middle of the great recession. My credit was ruined and I had nothing. This is the driving force behind my passion.
This is why I dedicated more than 10 years of my life educating myself. I want to help you not feel as vulnerable with your finances as I did.
