Dainty Dollar

Dainty Dollar is a financial literacy and coaching platform that educates, empowers, and equips people with the knowledge and money tools needed to confidently manage their money and build a life they love.

Hi, I'm Valery!

I’m a millennial Latina, wife, boy mama, serial entrepreneur, money expert, and a dreamer. I’m a coffee fanatic, on a life-long pursuit of knowledge, and determined to educate as many people as I can on financial literacy.

My mission is to bridge the financial knowledge gap by offering accessible and tailored money coaching services.


"I maxed out my Roth IRA for the first time ever right before starting law school"

Right after graduating with my undergrad, I took a year off to figure out life and work to build up my savings before law school. As a woman of color, Dainty Dollar really resonated with me and joining the Money + Mindset Bootcamp was life-changing. My financial worries were put to rest and I feel so confident about my financial future. I paid down my student loan debt and with the rest of my savings I began investing in a ROTH IRA.

To educate, empower, and equip people with the money knowledge and tools needed to confidently manage their money and build a life they love.

In our generation, there exists a significant gap in financial literacy that often goes unnoticed. Many of us embark on our financial journeys without the essential knowledge and tools needed to navigate the complexities of money management. This gap can lead to financial stress, missed opportunities, and a lack of confidence in our financial decisions. 

At Dainty Dollar, we’re passionate about bridging this knowledge gap by offering accessible and tailored money coaching services. I believe that with the right guidance, anyone can master their finances and achieve their money goals, regardless of their starting point. It’s time to empower ourselves with financial knowledge and take control of our financial futures.
