Lauryn's path from Olympic gold medalist to student loan consultant

By Travis Hornsby

Lauryn Williams isn’t just a student loan consultant here at Student Loan Planner. She’s also a four-time Olympian and three-time Olympic medalist who grew up learning to save and work hard for what she had. Though she graduated without student loan debt, she had many friends who struggled under the pressing weight of it. At only 20 years old, she began earning a $200,000 income, and she trusted financial advisers to sort out what to do with her money. But when those advisers didn’t end up having her best interests at heart, she decided to learn as much as she could about student loan financial planning to be the change she wanted to see in the world. She earned her MBA and CFP and started her own financial firm Worth While in Oct. 2015, where she currently works along with performing consultations for Student Loan Planner.
