  • GreenPath Financial Wellness is a trusted national nonprofit with more than 60-years of helping people build financial health and resiliency. Our NFCC-certified counselors give you options to manage credit card debt, student loans and homeownership.


Kristen Holt, CEO of GreenPath Financial Wellness, got her first fiscal life lesson from her parents.

When she was 10 years old, they allowed her to start her first job – walking dogs.  But the condition was she save half of the money she earned.

“That really stayed with me,” said Holt.  And it shows.  She is now CEO of a nonprofit financial counseling company.

GreenPath Financial Wellness counsels and offers programs for people to pay down debt.  In the position for just 18 months, Holt says it suits her to a tee given her skills as a Certified Public Accountant and her penchant for personal finance.

Holt plans to take her skills and create a seismic change in the company, going from just working with people who are in a debt crisis to helping people improve their long-term financial health. This includes helping people manage payments for credit cards, mortgages, car payments, health care debt, student loans and also doing pre-purchase housing counseling.
