What led you to AFCPE? I love the mission of this organization. I became aware of AFCPE as I was looking to add more certifications as a financial coach. As a knowledge seeker, being a part of the organization that helps financial coaches like myself keep our skills up to date was a major plus to my desire to grow and learn in this field.
What are you most excited about in your new role? I’m most excited about bringing forth some new ideas to our members that can diversify what financial education is and help to continue to foster educational opportunities for our newer community members.
What question do you have for the AFCPE community? What more would you like to see in our community? How can we continue to make our community more diversified?
