FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellow Profile - Adrienne Ross
share this page
Adrienne is an AFCPE Accredited Financial Counselor®, and a Financial Fitness Coach candidate. Since receiving the FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship in 2010, she has relentlessly pursued her passion of personal financial management. From working with military service members and their families, to serving low income and at risk households in non-profit organizations, to a private practice helping men and women align their dollars with their dreams, Adrienne is committed to helping people find mastery over their money.
For many years, life as a military spouse meant a career would have to wait. Numerous PCS moves and multiple overseas duty assignments made consistent employment impossible. However, the richness of military life meant that there were plenty of opportunities for learning and personal development. The advent of online schooling allowed Adrienne to complete a degree in Liberal Studies in 2008.
In 2010, upon her return to the United States, Adrienne was selected for the FINRA Foundation Military Spouse Fellowship. After many years abroad, returning to the United State required personal and financial readjustments. The skills that Adrienne learned in the fellowship program allowed her to make better financial decisions and help her family navigate the challenges associated with major lifestyle and pay changes.
Serving her practicum hours at Fort Myer, VA allowed her to combine her years of experience as a military spouse managing family finances in a wide variety of situations with the knowledge and skills gained in the AFCPE Accredited Financial Counselor program.
Now Adrienne is growing an active independent practice providing financial coaching services to both military families and civilians. Her goal is to help people align their dollars with their dreams, helping them connect their financial behaviors with their core values.
Adrienne currently resides in Stafford,VA.
