My short personal financial story began in 1979 when my husband joined the Navy. We struggled with the same personal financial challenges that young Sailors and Marines still face today. They included living paycheck-to-paycheck, mismanaging checking accounts, not building savings and making poor choices with credit.
I have worked with a military non-profit organization for the past twenty-two years and tapping in to those experiences has helped me to connect with the young Sailors, Marines and families I serve and educate. As an AFC® Candidate, I have found that each session has taught me new skills, reinforced those I already have and developed in me an even stronger desire to help our military focus on their financial management, goals and future.
