Jenna VanLeeuwen, CFP® is the Founder of Aligning Wealth.

As my MeeMaw says, my family knows how to squeeze a penny until it breaks. However, as an adult, I’ve learned that being good with money goes far beyond frugality.

Since then, I’ve learned true wealth is about using your resources -- money, time, energy -- to live with a sense of purpose and possibility. There’s a rare kind of magic in feeling like you have the skills and financial security to live according to your priorities. I want the same for you.

Whether it’s taking that dream trip, working less so you can spend more time with your family, or scaling up your business to impact more people, we’re here to help you make it happen.

When I’m not working with clients, I’m usually spending quality time with my husband Brian, my toddler Charlotte, and my two pups.

Most Saturdays, you’ll find the whole family popping into a coffee shop and then taking a walk to smell the flowers or play in the park. We occasionally take a big trip to see family in NC or a new place, but I’m currently delighted at living our ordinary lives here in Jersey City, NJ, watching both my daughter and my business grow.
