2Hello!  I’m Melissa Rush, Founder of Tech Savvy Coach – Social Media + Digital Marketing + Podcasting + Financial Wellness. 

I’m so pleased to share my expertise, story and business with you and connect with you in a meaningful way. 

In the height of the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, I began my practice as a Financial Professional and Licensed Agent with New York Life Insurance Company. During this tumultuous and uncertain time, I realized it was time to pivot my career trajectory and create financial independence by re-establishing my career in financial services. It took a lot of inner strenghth, confidence, drive and grit, to follow my dream. With a new set of powerful and marketable skills, best-in-class education, licensing and training, I knew it was my purpose to share my knowledge and resources to help others. In 2021, I created a seminar series called “Women, Wealth & Wellness” which brings women together to discuss our personal, emotional physical and financial fitness…and the interconnectedness between all of those facets of our lives. Each session brings together women experts in their fields, such as law, financial planning, medicine, life coaching, wellness and healing, to name a few, in order to educate, inspire, share and empower with other women.

As a financial professional and mother to two young daughters, I am passionate about educating, empowering and helping women, families and business owners protect your loved ones, plan for your retirement, save for your children’s college funds and prepare for your future. Now more than ever, it’s important to talk about your financial security and work with a professional to make a financial plan that is customized just for you. 

Life is a journey. My goal is to help you every step of the way. Everyone I work with is unique. Each one of us is experiecing our own stage of life…whether you are single, married (or divorced or widowed), having a new baby, buying a new home, starting a business venture, sending your kids to college (or enrolling in graduate school yourself!), or getting ready for retirement…Together, we will work to build a strategy that helps you protect what matters most…the future of your family, your retirement and your business.

In financial planning, it’s all about: Protection, Accumulation and Preservation. I can make recommendations, tailored to your needs, on a wide variety of protection and financial matters, so you can:

  • Protect your family’s future
  • Prepare for retirement
  • Grow your wealth
  • Preserve your assets for future generations
  • Protect and grow your business
