The IRC in Atlanta is thrilled to announce that our Financial Coach, Brigitte Bowser, recently earned the designation of CNM Certified Coach – Financial!
To earn this esteemed credential, Brigitte completed 69 hours of one-on-one coaching with a professional mentor over 1.5 years. Not only did Brigitte earn her certification while working full-time at IRC, CNM were so impressed with her work that they asked her to become a mentor coach for other aspiring Financial Coaches! We are so proud of Brigitte for this achievement and well-deserved recognition.
Since joining the IRC in Atlanta team three years ago, Brigitte has served hundreds of clients—from new refugee arrivals to more established immigrants, to native-born Americans—through her Financial Coaching program. She offers one-on-one coaching covering budget and credit reviews, strategies for credit building, financial goal setting, establishing a credit history, improving low credit scores, assistance with managing, reducing and settling debt, and access to CEO loan products.
Originally from Jamaica, Brigitte grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where she would go on to counsel first-time home buyers at a nonprofit for many years. From supporting hopeful home buyers to new Americans working hard to rebuild their lives, Brigitte’s passion is for empowering people to improve their financial, credit and life situations!
