Founder & Coach of Ellegant Wealth
Jayne Ellegard empowers women to show up and own their financial journey with Courage, Confidence, and Wisdom!
After thirty-four years of managing wealth for high-net-worth individuals and wealthy families across the United States, Jayne made the leap to entrepreneurship. She is uniquely qualified, with REAL experience and a variety of certifications and credentials. But even more important, she has an intense passion for providing women with a way to learn about money that’s enjoyable and fun—yes, fun!
Jayne is no longer serving as an advisor, so she is free of any conflicts. She isn’t selling any investment products or trying to gather assets under management. She worked for large corporations such as U.S. Bank, Piper Jaffray, and Cargill/Waycrosse. She has her master of business administration (MBA) from the University of St. Thomas, was a certified financial planner (but is no longer active or registered), is a certified career coach & counselor from Adler Graduate School, and is a results-based trained coach through the Neuroleadership Institute.
Jayne observed first-hand the overwhelming feelings that divorced or widowed women experienced when they had not been engaged (or in some cases not even included) in the conversations about their financial situations. She decided to step away from managing investments to focus on closing the financial education gap by teaching women to demand what they need and deserve. Jayne transforms women from “deer in headlights” to financial superstars!
Her book, Financial Empowerment for Women: Your Guide to Courage, Confidence & Wisdom!, is now available.
A “nice” Minnesotan who grew up in International Falls, the icebox of the nation on the Canadian border, Jayne grew up with ten sets of aunts and uncles and forty-seven cousins. She learned how to drive a stick-shift in Duluth in the middle of winter (she doesn’t recommend it), loves lake-related activities in both summer and winter, and is no stranger to the long Minnesota goodbye. Her son and brother were Minnesota State hockey champions forty years apart, and she’s been married to her best friend for almost thirty years.
