Who We Are

Meet Our Client Service Team

“Our passion is helping you unleash your money’s hidden potential.”

We are convinced that traditional financial planning methods are not keeping up with the challenges of living a happy, healthy, and productive life well into your 80's and 90's. In September of 2002, we set out to create a new kind of financial services company, and Money Counts was born.

Our consulting process is designed to show you practical and innovative personal cash flow management strategies to help you begin realizing your full financial potential.


Our Advisory Team:

Debbie Peterson
President

Debbie’s background in project management and strategic planning, as well as her experience in cash flow management, greatly enhances clients’ potential for financial success. Debbie pioneered the concept of Cash Flow Management as a critical (and missing piece) of traditional financial planning. Her 18 years of experience as the senior manager of Trust Operations and Technology with a major bank in upstate NY provide a unique perspective for our clients in how banks use velocity of money concepts to increase profits and why these same principles can work for individuals.

Jennifer Meldrim
Client Relationship Manager, Client Relations

Jennifer connected with the Money Counts team in June, 2008 as a project manager. After spending time at home with her two children and managing the household, she decided to re-engage with the workforce utilizing her business degree once again. Prior to her role as a stay at home parent, Jennifer worked for a major payroll provider in the 401k reconciliation department and worked her way up to an account executive for Major Market Services. Jennifer was in charge of new client set up and training on payroll software. This background has enabled her to assist our clients with the review process, online account access, and preparation for client meetings.
