With a family that is deeply rooted in community work, Chinyere always had a genuine interest in the socio-economic landscape of America.. That interest led her to study Political Science at Morris Brown College in her hometown of Atlanta, Ga. After receiving her BA, Chinyere’s plans changed drastically. Instead of attending law school, she pivoted to a career in the insurance and financial services industry. She saw a career in this industry as a way to serve the underserved and to instantly feed her interests.
In 2006 Chinyere began helping individuals protect their most valuable assets; themselves and their families. Through workshops, discussions and speaking engagements she was able to teach families how to implement life insurance strategies wealthy families have been using for generations to transfer wealth. In 2010 Chinyere began to hold seminars on Medicare and Social Security Maximization, further helping individuals understand the long term planning and the financial impact of aging.
Chinyere became a fee-based Fiduciary Investment Advisor, obtaining her Series 65 Investment licence and quickly began working with younger families to help them become financially fit now while they also prepare for the years ahead. In a comfortable position to assist individuals, Chinyere was ready to champion the creation of group wealth strategies.
For several years, Chinyere played an intricate role in Us Lifting Us Economic Cooperative LLC. This global cooperative, founded by her father; Hekima Kanyama, is designed to spur ownership and economic wealth in the black world. Serving as Board of Director and Treasurer over time, Chinyere watched ULU grow from a group of 5-7 people in Atlanta, to having hundreds of members in over 10 different countries pooling resources for our collective good.
To further support her community, Chinyere obtained her Spiritual Life Coaching (SLC. LC) designation through Life Purpose Institute. She combines life coaching skills with financial advising skills helping individuals and groups open up to financial fears and re-create an
authentic relationship with money.
