WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
Mana is an ancient Hawaiian word for power unrelated to wealth.
We all have the chance to gain or lose mana in everything we do.
The choice is yours.
MEET OUR FOUNDERS
As women who’ve spent their lives in the male-dominated world of Wall Street, Cristina and Stephanie’s mission in life is to empower populations that have been underserved by traditional education and big finance, including young professionals, women and minorities.
CRISTINA LIVADARY, CFP®, RLP®
When Cristina immigrated to the United States from the Philippines in the early 90’s, she was homeless and had no hope for financial stability. She learned that hard work paid off, excelled at school and earned herself a water polo scholarship to Bucknell University. When a shoulder injury caused her to lose her scholarship, she was forced to take out over $100,000 in student loans. For over a decade after school, she advised financial advisors at one of the top institutional wealth asset managers, Russell Investment Group, and managed to pay down her entire student loan balance and $30,000 in credit card debt. She knows intimately how challenging the system can be when you don’t have knowledge and a healthy strategy.
Cristina quit the finance industry in 2018 and studied for and passed the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ exam. It’s now her mission to help others like her avoid the same mistakes that got her into such dire straits, and now she and her business partner Stephanie Bucko joined forces to help empower underserved individuals around their finances.
