Elizabeth Karwowski


Get Credit Healthy, Inc.

As a consultant in early stages of her career and having her own mortgage brokerage firm, she always knew that technology always played an important part in gaining efficiency and productivity. However, starting Get Credit Healthy and having vision and then embarking on the reality of creating a technology platform from scratch has been an eye opener for her.

She has worked with the development team to build a platform that creates efficiency, productivity, and ease of use for consumers and lending institutions.  The platform is now used by thousands and helped lenders turn hundreds of millions from fall-out into funded loans.

Elizabeth has been involved in endless drawings, strategy seasons, flow charts, etc. She says, “It’s great having a vision and a team that has the same drive to make things possible when people told me it’s impossible.  I have learned that building a technology platform has many layers.  Layers that many times you would not even think of.”

The project consisted of B2B communication & a B2B tool, B2C communication & a B2C tool, API, Interactive tools, system integrations, artificial intelligence, etc. Not only does it provide consumers with what is affecting their credit, but it also gives them direct and personalized guidance on steps they need to take to improve their credit & financial wealth.  The tool drills down to answer questions like: What’s affecting me (the consumer)? Why is it affecting me? What steps can I take to improve my situation? Elizabeth proves that technology, people and processes can improve the credit profile of consumers.

Katya Zevallos

Executive Director

Starting Now Corp.

Katya has developed a process through using advanced technology with proven workflows that allows non-profit credit coaches to focus on the “coaching” aspect of working with their clients versus the tedious paperwork.

She works directly with a development team to design and implement the process of updating consumers credit profile with the credit reporting agencies and creditors through one technology platform.

Katya worked for Get Credit Healthy for over 9 years in assisting with the development of the technology for the credit coach process.  As a credit coach herself (FICO & FCRA certified), she understands the importance of  “hands on coaching” with the consumer.  This involves more time speaking to the consumer and less time on tedious repetitive tasks through the use of technology.  Knowing what the ultimate goal of what it meant to be a great credit coach, Katya helped facilitate the workflow process to the technical team to help implement a very robust program for all future nonprofit credit coaches.

She helped thousands of clients herself and understands the importance of having technology track activities on each consumer file (transparency) and being able to use advanced technology to follow up with and help improve consumer credit profiles one individual at a time.
