As a graduate of Russell Sage College, I was shaped by my professors in the areas of world affairs and working with underserved populations. One of the major challenges that continued to be a theme during studies and personal development was the lack of critical analysis, particularly financial literacy. Each generation previous sought huge strides educationally, which enhanced their financial viability and created stable communities.
As my journey came to an end as an undergrad, my interest shifted from contributing to literacy on financial management toward becoming a practitioner, ultimately attending graduate school and concentrating on business management and finance. This desire to touch lives stemmed in part from the experience of my loved ones, who were directly impacted by the challenges of wealth management and retiring comfortably.
