“When it comes to wealth, attitude is everything,” Marlene explains.  “If our relationship
with money is damaged, our financial wings remain broken. I help women grow moneywings, one brave feather at time.”  Moneywings is a term she created to describe the feminine power women have to manage their attitude and mindset around money regardless of their financial story.

Marlene launched her signature private 1×1 coaching program, MoneyWings™ in 2015 to help busy women nurture a wealthy mindset to grow their income to the next level. She believes learning the dance between faith and money {financial spirituality} empowers her clients to play big and achieve beautiful, rippling success.

Through her private coaching, business retreats and workshops, Marlene tenderly offers a fresh perspective to motivate women to  answer their call to greatness in business and life.


Before becoming a mamapreneur, Marlene was popular co-host of the national TV program “Word in the World” with Fr. Michael Manning that aired on Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN) and the Armed Services Network in over 100 million homes around the world. During this time, Marlene authored the Women of the Millennium video series, in English and Spanish, used in over 150 churches and media centers including Africa, Ireland, Canada and the U.S.

She earned her Masters degree in Religious Education from Boston College and her B.A. in International Relations from U.C. Davis.

Highly respected as a beacon of light and wisdom, Marlene’s positive messages are a source of strength and hope encouraging women from all walks of life to believe in themselves with courage and compassion.  Her deep faith, combined with her multi-talented list of achievements, have made her an inspirational thought leader and sought after speaker.

Prior to her work on television, Marlene was District Director to U.S. Congressman Jay Kim. At the tender age of 25, she was already demonstrating her public speaking gifts and heart for service.  During her tenure with Rep. Kim, Marlene became a popular speaker on issues about the human spirit that would lead her to shift from political life to spirituality in 1996, and ultimately into the entrepreneurial lifestyle she enjoys today.

In the fall of 2016, Marlene earned her certification as a Brain Personality Connection Specialist, blending powerful brain science into her money coaching work. She is co-author of the #1 bestseller Bloom Where You Are Planted and Shine! released September 15, 2017.
