I’m on a mission to help women build wealth. Ladies, we’re going to talk about money - how to get it, grow it, manage it - in order to achieve our goals.
Who am I? Fair question!
I’m a woman that has always been fascinated by money. At 5, my dad explained that the bank would pay me interest in exchange for my savings. This blew my mind - money without having to work for it!
I’m a saver - and have been from the time I was a little girl. My parents coached me save at least half of all cash I received - from small jobs like babysitting, washing cars, doing yard work, and from birthdays or holidays. At thirteen, I received my first W-2 for $354 after working my first summer job. I’ve been working ever since.
I have my Bachelors in Business from the University of Michigan, where I studied finance. My partner and I have accumulated more than $1.1M in invested assets by the age of 35. I’m also a lifelong student - while I know a lot about personal finance, I still have much to learn.
Finally, but importantly, I’m a feminist - meaning, I am passionate about equality and believe in the amazing power that women have when we help other women.
