Emma Newman: Money and Life Coach

I’m Emma. You’re probably here because you are ready for change. You might even dedicate your life to changing things for the better.


As a money and life coach, I support changemakers to thrive with money and life. 

Align Your Money and Life With Your Values

If you have a vision for a thriving and equitable world, but are overwhelmed and burnt out working to make it a reality, you are not alone. You may want to donate to causes you care about or invest for your future, but instead feel guilty about purchases you've made or fear looking at your debt. 

I will support you to clarify what is most important to you and create goals worth playing for. Together, we will align your lifestyle and your finances with your values. You will experience increased joy and spaciousness as you live a more meaningful and fulfilling life that focuses on giving your unique skills, perspective, resources, or other gifts to the world. 

"What Emma's been enabling me to do is to feel and to be a much fuller self that I've always wanted to be"

Dove Cassady

Be part of the thriving world you dream of by living intentionally.

Meet Coach Emma

I am a money-and-life coach who supports young professionals to thrive as they shift power to change systems and create healthy, equitable, and resilient communities. Given my decade-long career as a senior transportation planner, I specialize in serving people who work in transportation.

My vision for a healthier world inspires me to support people like you to align your life and money with your values so that you can be your best self and thrive as we collectively transform the world. 

When not coaching clients and geeking out about personal finance, you'll find me serving on Oregon's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, riding bikes, gardening, cooking, doing yoga, or hiking in the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest.

Coaching with Emma

I support people to be our whole and complete selves, lean into growth, learning, and contribution, find enjoyment in the process, and produce results that we may not even consider are possible until we’re moving forward and making progress.


Whether I'm working with an individual or a couple, one of my favorite parts is the moment when we unlock new realities and possibilities together.


The work we do together enables people to use their money and live life in more intentional and conscious ways. I support people to get clear about the impact they want to make and to make it more effectively. With personal finances, I support people to get clear about what they want with their money, establish a roadmap that maps out their personal success route, set goals, and make progress.


As your coach, I will provide consistent support to facilitate the change process. However, it only works if you show up ready to change and willing to put in the time and energy to produce the results you seek.


If you do, you’ll have me as your coach on the adventure with you. I’ll ride by your side, handing you clif bars and other encouragement snacks, and cheering you on as you pedal up hills to reach the vistas you aspire to experience.


I support people to see who they really are and go for what matters most to them.


Do you seek to have a positive impact with your life? Do you want someone supporting you in doing so?


It would be an honor to explore being on a team with you.

Ready to Take Action?

I can support you to guide your own money and life journey and take action on what is most important to you. Don't know where to start? No problem, I didn't either when I started my financial and life coaching journey! That's why I'm here to help.


I help people with creating a spending plan, establishing a personal vision, setting goals to play towards, becoming debt free, and saving for and investing in what's most important to them. Coaching is customized to support your specific situation.

How it Works

Everyone starts with a free discovery session that provides us with an opportunity to learn about one another and see which of my programs (Financial Clarity, Coaching, or group offerings) would be a good fit to help you accomplish your dreams.

What Clients Say:

"Emma was such a wonderfully gentle and present guide who helped me uncover the courage and strengths I didn't realize I already had. She helped me hone in on what is most important to me and how I can get closer to the vision I had for my life. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone ready to make their visions a reality TODAY."

Rose, Graduate Student

“Emma is wonderful to work with! She is smart, organized, kind, personable, and has a plethora of resources and tools to share. More than anything, she wants to help you reach your goals, whatever they might be. She's like the financial cheerleader that you didn't even know you needed but are so happy to have found.”
