Who are Ascend Financial Freedom?

Jacquie Ashby

Financial Coach & Mortgage Broker

I started in finance in 2000, and through my previous businesses Ascend Finance and Ascend Wealth, I’ve been helping people get in, and OUT of debt! I’m passionate about helping people understand “money stuff”, and especially passionate about helping women rebuild their lives.  Combined with Steve’s passion for making sure kids get the best start in life, we’ve joined forces to create Ascend Financial Freedom where we can share the joy of witnessing the changes we’re making to families lives, by making “grown-up finance stuff” simple, easy and fun “get”.

Steve Hough

Business Manager

I have been in the finance industry since 2013 making the jump from logistics and retail. I made the jump in careers so I can not only make a difference in peoples lives but to allow more time with family. This is why I along with Jacquie started Ascend Financial Freedom.

Professional, yet friendly and personalized service most brokers we have dealt with in the past totally lacked. It's all about the care factor. We are super happy and look forward to the next project with Jacquie & Steve.

I attended the Finance for Grown-ups workshop and loved it!! Jacquie is so down to earth and real with a huge passion for helping others so I'll definitely be seeing her again. The evening was informative, real and supportive and has helped me redefine the direction I need to move in. Thanks so much Jacquie (and Steve) for putting on this workshop.
