After receiving a degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Economics, I began a career on Wall Street. I later found my calling in the nonprofit sector, holding various financial roles in education-focused organizations. Over time I became aware of a devastatingly pervasive deficiency in the basic personal finance life-skills of my clients.
I decided to make it my mission to solve this problem through education. I began teaching and enhancing an adult basic financial literacy program created at Columbia Business School. I later developed my own program for adults with additional versions geared towards middle school, high school and college students and founded this nonprofit.
Without the hard work and dedication of our executive and advisory boards and team of generous and supportive partner organizations, none of this would have been possible.
