Raquel Smith, Financial Aid Advisor for UNLV (University of Nevada Las Vegas)

Raquel will discuss things you need to know about getting financial aid at a large university. 


Leisa Peterson, MBA, CFP® is the founder of WealthClinic, a global community that helps people improve their relationship with money through online interactive workshops and retreats.

Leisa’s a pioneer in the field of financial mindfulness. If you’ve never heard that term before, it’s because it’s radically new...which hints at how leading edge Leisa’s WealthClinic programs are. Because Leisa does something no one else ever thought of before: she combines mindfulness practices with finance. 

We may think mindfulness and finance are two completely opposite worlds, but Leisa discovered they’re actually linked tightly together. 

Before founding WealthClinic, Leisa spent 22 years in executive roles for some of the largest financial institutions in the United States. At the same time, she spent 15 years meditating andteaching others how to use mindfulness in their day-to-day activities.

For years, she witnessed rational clients, loved ones, and herself doing crazy things around money. Which made her wonder, “Why do we do such things?” And “Why can’t we stop it?”
