About Our Guest

During her 17 years in business, Ericka Young has served over 500 families as a certified financial coach.  Her specialty is helping people crush debt so that they can design a vibrant and intentional life.

While helping her 2 daughters in their college decisions, Ericka witnessed first-hand the many barriers to accessing a debt-free college education.

In addition, Ericka is passionate about creating diverse, inclusive, equitable communities. She is busy working to create a world where everyone is welcome in all spaces, and they have the financial resources to participate fully in those spaces. 

When Ericka isn’t crunching the numbers or at least talking about them, she loves traveling, dancing her heart out, and beating her husband of 24 years at word games.
