Festina Manly-Spain

Founder and CEO

My passion for numbers and money runs deep. I would say it's in my blood, with my grandma paving the way. She was Assistant Accountant General, the 2nd highest Accountant in all of Sierra Leone. She taught me basic money management skills like budgeting, savings, and giving back. Naturally, I pursued a degree in accounting but only after taking a course and it was an instant swipe-right!

So let's work together to build a financially sound and thriving business, not just for ourselves, but for the next generation.

After giving birth to my daughter, my entrepreneurial itch kicked into overdrive. I wanted to teach her the skills my grandma had taught me and more. I wanted to teach her that there's more to life than just working for others. Instead, turn your passion into a business, manage it well, and money will come - not just for your own financial security but for creating a lasting legacy.

I boldly decided to leave the conventional path and pursue my passion. I started FMS Advisory to empower women entrepreneurs to unlock their potential and achieve their dreams through business ownership, guided by the notion that with dedication, perseverance, and smart financial management, anything is possible.

Ashley McClain

...I had been hoping from tax prep services and was missing out on key fillings in my taxes. Thankfully Festina was able to address these issues and place on a path to success. Currently, my tax/accounting situation is much more organized. I can easily find any tax or accounting documentation. If I have questions FMS advisory is easily accessible to answer any questions I may have."
