Personal Quote

"Learning how to make the most of my money has been a passion since opening my first retirement account just after graduating college. It was much later, in a second career, that I discovered my love for turning numbers into visual stories. At, I bring both of those aptitudes together, striving always to spotlight current personal finance research in the most accessible ways possible."
