Hi I’m Sandra McGuire

I am inspired to create a world where everybody has access to financial education and feels empowered to take control of their situation and achieve financial freedom.

I see people struggling with money and how that impacts their lives and I truly know that I can help them to move beyond these challenges and empower them to create the life they deserve.

Formerly a Financial Adviser and Accountant, I’ve been involved in the Finance Industry for many years in Advisory firms and Superannuation Funds. The current traditional Financial Advice model is very complex and costly and doesn’t meet the needs of everyone. I have seen the need for people to have access to basic financial knowledge (which we didn’t learn in school) and understand some of their money drivers which will help them improve their financial future.

I want to ensure all members of the community have basic financial skills which provide a foundation to build their lives and achieve their goals.

My Credentials

I’ve been involved in financial services for 20+ years. My qualifications include:

  • Certified Money Coach (CMC)®
  • Meet Education requirements for Financial Advisers on ASIC register*

  • Member of the Financial Planning Association

  • CPA and Member of Certified Practising Accountants Australia

  • Bachelor of Business (Accounting)

*Not currently licensed.

What do I do?

I can turn the “complex” unknowable money and finance stuff into easily understandable knowledge.

I am a Certified Money Coach (CMC)® and offer a step-by-step coaching process that helps people to understand and become more conscious of their patterns and behaviours around money.

I also provide personal specific individual education sessions on specific topics such as cashflow management and budgeting, savings and investments, superannuation and retirement, and financial goal setting and strategy.

Currently, I live with my husband, two teenage children and a cat, and I enjoy spending my time doing yoga, watching AFL and sports, and supporting my community by volunteering and being a member of the board of my local Rotary club.


“Money Mentor Program delivers financial literacy courses to students at middle secondary schools and also the community. During my time in this role, I have found Sandra McGuire to be a great advocate for financial literacy education. She has participated as a volunteer at secondary schools, provided resources to enhance the program, utilised her networks to promote our offering and also recommended us for a recent Future2Foundation grant provided through the FPA which we were successful in receiving $10,000. It has been a delight to work with her!”

“Sandra from Money Wellness delivered practical, relevant, and insightful financial education to enrich our recent community-focused social enterprise employment program. The group was diverse in terms of language, education and work experience, Sandra created a safe environment for people to ask questions and equip themselves with new knowledge that would support them once they were in paid work. We look forward to future collaborations with Sandra to help people who are looking for support with financial education and wellbeing.”

“Money wellness is so important, today more than ever as we deal the pressures of life. Meeting with Sandra I felt immediately comfortable and was happy to engage with her. Sandra is warm and knowledgeable and the techniques used by Money Wellness have really helped me understand my relationship with money and how I can better manage it. I would recommend everyone to use a financial coach, and Sandra comes with my high regards.”

“Sandra’s Money Coaching is truly unique in that the emotional aspects behind money decisions are given due consideration. In addition, exploration of my money archetypes helped me gain insight into my relationship with money. These are such important considerations to be aware of when making financial decisions. Sandra has since provided invaluable guidance with practical strategies to address some of the behaviours and attached emotions. Financial education resources were also provided as part of the comprehensive Money Coaching package.”
