I'm Derek, and I get out of bed to make people better off today than they were yesterday so that they can live an easier, more intentional life.

I believe that money need not be stressful. I created Money Health Solutions to help you use money on purpose, with purpose, to support the life that you'd be proud to live.

If you believe in living life intentionally in a world where money isn't stressful, then we'd be a good fit.

By patiently helping us see how our life experiences shaped the way we think about money, we began to see and understand each other's different money priorities, which brought us closer together.
