Author Tags: Women

Award-winning, financial expert and Certified Investment Advisor Tracy Theemes is a co-founder of the Sophia Financial Group. Prior to entering the world of finance, while doing doctoral work in child psychology at UBC, she worked with financially challenged families in the downtown eastside of Vancouver. That experience made her question what role poverty and wealth played in the spiral of disadvantage. Returning to Vancouver after successful careers in New York and Los Angeles, Theemes became convinced that women needed a different approach to financial planning. Her work with women across a broad socio-economic spectrum encouraged her to write, The Financially Empowered Woman: Everything You Really Want to Know about Your Money (Greystone/LifeTree Media $19.95). Theemes’ five-step planning guide explores the social and emotional roots behind money problems, and offers advice to help women get their financial life on track and gain control of their financial lives.
