Hi, I'm Star B. Melancon

Financial Strategist and CEO & Founder of SHEbuildingHER


My journey started in the San Francisco Bay Area, in corporate America, as a bio-pharmaceutical Microbiologist. My personal experiences in corporate America led me here, to you, as a Financial Strategist & Educator for women.


Weird right? Working in corporate America gave me a crystal clear view of the expanding gap between women (specifically of color) and everyone else as it pertained to money.


I realized I was a product of that gap. I was making "good" money in my job, however, I was NOT creating wealth, and honestly, I had no idea where to start. That's when I set out on a journey of understanding and learning.


Eventually, as women around me saw my life-transforming, they began to ask questions. Based on the way I was able to answer their questions and teach them in a simple way, it led them to ask for 1:1 help with their finances. That's when SHEbuildingHER was born.


As a full-time entrepreneur and business owner, I run a Financial Consulting Agency who help women create strategies to reach their short and long term financial goals through Budgeting, Saving, Investing, Debt Repayment, and planning for Retirement. 


I am a native of Oakland, CA, a wife, mother of 2 boys, and an HBCU graduate.
