Mrs. Shay Cook is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Crusaders for Change, LLC.
In addition to devoting herself to several civil service positions (i.e., Coast Guard HQ’s Chief of Family Services, Director of Army Community Services, Work-Life Specialist for Airman & Family Readiness Center, etc.), being an active member of her local community, and raising an impressive teenage daughter with her husband (retired Air Force), Shay somehow found time to start her own company, Crusaders for Change (C4C), LLC on May 5, 2016. C4C is focused on empowering and equipping the broader community with tools they need to become financially free through coaching, counseling and classes. She landed her first contract with FINRA Investor Education Foundation where she serves as a consultant and the Financial Readiness Manager.
Shay has an infectious attitude and passion for helping people. This is evident given her impressive professional history and clear devotion to the mission at hand. She has worked for several Federal Credit Unions and the Federal government, including the Air Force, Army and Coast Guard. Her government career has included developing policy, program management, and strategic planning. She has been a certified Accredited Financial Counselor®️ for 12 years and received a Financial Fitness Coach®️ certification in 2019. She also has a Bachelor’s and Master’s in psychology. Shay’s personal and professional commitment is built upon providing financial and educational services and support to families.
