In The News

From time to time I am approached by members of the media to help provide context and understanding with difficult financial concepts. I’m always happy to help because I believe there is a lack of understanding of personal finance-related topics in our nation. Quite frankly, that is what I specialize in: take personal finance concepts, strip the jargon out, then explain things in plain English so anyone can clearly understand and implement their new-found knowledge.

Beyond helping the media members with their stories, sometimes I am mentioned or quoted in an article. I have added some of these articles below. Read the headline of the article, and if interested, click the link and you will be taken to the article itself. Many are educational and some are even fun to read.
