The Brunch & Budget Team

Pamela Capalad, CFP® | Founder & Financial Planner

I devoted my life to financial literacy to help you get to that place in your life. You know that place. That place where you close your eyes and feel perfectly at peace and energized all at the same time. That place where you know you’re at your best, that you were somehow built for this, this thing you’re doing that you can’t believe you get to spend your life doing.

Life isn’t about cringing every time you run your credit card through a cash register or dodging calls from bill collectors. It’s not about the next paycheck, next rent check, next job, next in line.

Life is about finding your why.

So here’s the deal – you have the why, I have the how.

Nicole Gomez | Associate Planner

Hi, I’m Nicole Gomez and I’m an Associate Financial Planner at Brunch & Budget. 

I’ve worked closely with Pam from 2008-2013 in a private wealth firm and learned a lot.  Today I am happy to be working with Pam once again, helping her clients have a better understanding of their finances and show them opportunities for how to do more with what they have so they can live it up!

I have 12 years of progressive experience in improving organizational effectiveness for small and large-scale enterprises. I love providing clients with the best service possible, and get a kick out of finding areas for process and quality improvements.

Brian 'Dyalekt' Kushner | Podcast Cohost & Workshop facilitator

As a mixed race Caribbean kid, I had trouble figuring out where to find roles that I felt comfortable playing. I started writing for myself and others by turning my music into plays. Every piece I create has an educational component. It's the 'each on teach one' part of Hip Hop.

I've been an entrepreneur since my teenage days, and tell my students that the only thing that gets me out of my house before 10am is talking to kids. Since the essence of Hip Hop is making something from nothing, I have rapped, written, and performed every freelance gig available to my skill set. I linked up with Pockets Change and cohost the Brunch & Budget podcast  to help people find freedom in expression, understanding, and their finances.

Raquel Ponce | Podcast Associate

Hi! Lil’ Raq here! I’m into hearing and telling stories in various forms. I came across Brunch and Budget through one of my professors. She mentioned that they were searching for an intern so I decided to give an episode a listen and haven’t looked back.

The work I do for the show is more behind the scenes, but every now and then you’ll hear me in an episode as the “new adult” perspective. If you see a post with #SiSePuede you’ll know it was me.

I plan on being more active as a storyteller, maybe freelance a bit, or start my own show—who knows? I’m a lil person with big dreams.
