Having a great financial education from my parents — which included starting my first business when I was 9 — I thought everyone knew how to save, budget, and negotiate. It wasn’t until after college I realized most people, especially women, are at a severe disadvantage when it comes to their money and career knowledge.
I watched female friends get paid less than their worth. I read stories online about women being denied career opportunities because they were seen as “less.” I had sexist, negative comments said to me at work by male colleagues. So I knew that I had to fight back.
Fighting for women's financial rights is what I was put on this earth to do. I wake up every morning with a fire in my belly, ready to rally against wealth inequality. Women face extra hurdles: the opportunity gap, wage gap, the investing gap, and the wealth gap. But by giving women resources to fuel their careers and help them manage their money, we can start changing the world.
My career started with landing a digital marketing contract worth tens of thousands, and a full-time position as the head of marketing and communications for a global security company — all before I turned 22.
As a professional digital marketer, I lead, develop, and execute social media and communication strategy for global conferences, brands, and organizations. I love my 9-5 work at Tomorrow Ideas, a financial tech start-up based in Seattle, where we provide every family in America a free Will right from their phone.
