"Fenske Financial Coaching has helped me feel empowered about my financial situation as I go through separation and divorce. There are many decisions to make in this journey and having support from Karen has given me so much peace and direction.

I feel on top of my finances! I know where my money is going.

She provides options for me to think about. Instead of taking on the whole package all at once, Karen has given me homework that I could manage and has checked in to see if I was making progress. This piece of knowing I had a knowledgeable financial person on my team has given me more strength than I could have imagined." J.B. 2021
