Breakout Session: How Taking A Uncommon Path To Financial Coaching Led To A 5 Figure Contract

Dr. Ann James is the founder of Financial Freedom Battle Buddies, where she works with members of the military and veteran community, teaching them how to regain control over their finances so they can live life freely. While serving in the enlisted and officer ranks, Dr. Ann learned first-hand the challenges of military life, and it is because of her lived experiences that she’s on a mission to share lessons learned with others.

Dr. Ann has worked with the Wounded Warrior Financial Education Program, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Financial Coaching Initiative, and Clark County Veterans Treatment Court. Additionally, her contributions as an Accredited Financial Counselor® and Certified Financial Fitness Coach® have led to her being featured by WELLS FARGO, USA TODAY, and THE PENNY HOARDER.

In her coveted free time, she enjoys traveling the world(especially cruising), watching crime shows, and spending time with family and friends.
