Personal finance geek-in-chief at Fortuna Money. I was a hot money mess for most of my life, but we've been budgeting since 2014 and paid off our house in 2019. I want everybody to have financial empowerment, so I'm here to deliver compassion and knowledge that helps you create a financial life aligned with your values, not your billing cycles. (Also, I did financial crime investigations at one of America's biggest banks for years, so I'm a pro at untangling money stuff; you can't scare me.)
