In this episode, I talk to Accredited Financial Counselor Jessica Medina about leaving her legal career to put work-life integration and her own purpose front and center. Jessica is Dominican and Puerto Rican. She graduated from Columbia law school as a single mother to twins and with over $200k in student loan debt. To confront the financial burden she felt after graduating from law school, Jessica worked for a prestigious law firm. We discuss Jessica’s transition from struggling with money in law school and working for a firm, to representing the federal government, to paving her own path to pursue her love of helping others create feasible financial plans so they can have joyful and fulfilling lives. We talk about the fear of change and discomfort, and how we can be so aware of something but yet not take action on it until later, and she drops some serious financial wisdom on us too.
