I live in New York City with my husband and two children. I started my business, Down-to-Earth Finance, 7 years ago. We help women with their finances without selling any investments! We focus on teaching them about their finances from an unbiased standpoint. Previously, I spent nearly 10 years on Wall Street and have an MBA in Finance. Big change! I feel very fortunate that I can work in a career I love and still spend quality time with my family.
