Hugoline van Hoorn, RLP® founded Huug! Financial Life Planning in 2018 after 20 years as a banker. Prior to a career in finance, Hugoline spent 10 years as a professional squash player. She is 52 years old and lives in Eindhoven with her wife and dog. After earning the Registered Life Planner® designation, she discovered there were no job offers for Financial Life Planners so she started her own practice and called it Huug! (short for Hugoline). This turned out to be the best decision because it facilitated living her Life Plan to the fullest, balancing all things/persons important and meaningful to her! Hugoline loves helping her clients on their journey: starting with guiding them through the Life Planning Process and witnessing how they (re)discover their ideal life, then combining their ideal life with their numbers, resulting in a complete plan for them. She says, “That’s a great start of a life-long collaboration. The power of Life Planning and the results of a trajectory still give me goosebumps every time I help people through Financial Life Planning!”
