TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We create tools that help teach kids how to be responsible with money. They learn how to earn, save and spend based on decisions about needs vs. wants and determined by their willingness to work towards their goals. We help kids understand real world concepts like paying bills, buying insurance (recommended for 4th grade and up), and even creating businesses and learning about stocks and investing (for 6th-8th grade). The curriculum with app/desktop tool will help them use technology to track their earnings, savings and plan their spending wisely. The life skills they will be introduced to like applying for jobs and being responsible for their own work and money will lay the personal finance foundation that will last a lifetime.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on project work that simulates "real world" and integrates easy to use technology in desktop and app that acts as a learning tool to help kids track their own virtual earnings and progress. We believe that it is easier to teach someone a new good habit, than break an old bad habit, so we think financial education should be taught early and in a real-world simulation so kids can begin to understand the implications of their wants long before getting their first job or credit card.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Won 2nd Place in Women Tech Challenge in D.C; 2015 against 140 other companies.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

78% of American families live paycheck to paycheck and 34% have no savings at all. I grew up in a family that fell into both categories. While we were fortunate to make ends meet most of the time, it took my mom 2 and sometimes 3 jobs at a time to do it and we often couldn't afford much beyond our basic needs. I realized early on that it was not a struggle I wanted my own kids to have to live through. So teaching financial discipline is very important to me.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I was a marketer for 20 years after graduating with a Graphic Design and Communications degree from the University of Michigan in 1996. And got my MBA from the Fisher College of Business at the Ohio State University in 2014 and have been focused on financial education ever since and the founder of Fam-ess (www.fam-ess.com), which stands for Family First, Earn Always, Save Often, and Spend Wisely. And the founder of Quest to Clean Up (www.questtocleanup.com).
