P. Elaine Kennebrew 
Chief Executive Officer


P. Elaine, better known as "Laine" Kennebrew the Financial Coach is a financial literacy educator. 

She sometimes refers to herself as the "entrepreneur's social worker". 


Laine has expertise in homeownership, debt and credit management.  She is a veteran helping veterans, new entrepreneurs and seniors by providing consulting, budget planning, resources, and social services.  As an active member of the Association of Financial Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE®), she embraces its mission of "ensuring the highest level of knowledge, skill, and integrity of the personal-finance profession" and desires to "serve communities worldwide."   

Laine is passionate about spreading her wealth of knowledge nationally.  She has successfully consulted, and managed multi-million-dollar foundation funds covering a five-county area, worked in the financial sector for large companies, including American Express and United Way/RealSense. 


She also operated successful tax businesses-no wonder why we call her the financial guru.  Laine's resume speaks for itself. 


In addition to all of the mentioned accolades, she's served as a Certified Housing Counselor with years of realtor experience.  Laine is all about "getting your finances in order," and she believes in doing it stylishly as a proud Steve Madden Ambassador!


I bet you are wondering:  where does her tenacity and dedication stem from?

Laine is a United States Marine Corps veteran.  While working in classified materials communications, she held a NATO Top Secret security clearance and studied Christian Counseling / Psychology at Liberty University and Business Administration while at Chapman College.  During her tenure, she received Letters of Commendation, the Good Conduct medal, and Letters of Appreciation in addition to two Honorable Discharges. 


Laine has always had a heart for helping people and being a guiding light for those that cross her path!  In her spare time, you may catch her stylin' in her Steve Madden sneaks, praising Jesus Christ and spending quality time with her family!  She also enjoys traveling, watching SciFi movies, and listening to various music genres.


If you are ready to get your finances whipped into shape, you know exactly who to call!
