Learn about Brittney

Brittney Castro, CFP®, is the founder and CEO of Financially Wise Women, a Los Angeles-based financial planning firm whose mission is to teach women and couples in their 30s and 40s the art of managing their money the fun and simple way. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, Brittney works with busy professionals and creative women and couples who are ready to make their finances work for them and use their money to live the lives of their dreams. Brittney believes in making money management fun and enjoyable, and she’s known for her innovative, non-judgmental and compassionate approach to financial planning.

Born and raised in California, Brittney was instilled with a sense of financial responsibility at a young age, and fondly remembers clipping coupons with her mother on Sunday mornings. Brittney attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business economics and a minor in sports management.

Brittney also serves as the Chase Financial Education Ambassador, a role in which she’ll be traveling the country, giving interviews and speaking at events in an effort to spread financial literacy to more Hispanic women and men.

Away from the office, you can find Brittney working out, drinking coffee or a green smoothie, playing at the park with her dog Arya and, of course, dancing.

“The most rewarding part of being a CFP® pro is being able to help other women learn how to manage their money and use their money to live a life they love. I love being able to teach people about personal finance and help them understand how to set up systems and strategies to better maximize their income and assets to reach their goals.”
