Tennis, winning at tennis, hanging with friends after tennis; rooting for the University of Rochester’s women’s field hockey team; knowing when to use I and me; fires—inside and outside; planning the next travel adventure with my husband and kids. Having served eight years on my village board as trustee, I’m a political junkie, too.
“I love explaining things in a way that make money matters easy to understand so people can feel confident about making financial decisions—be it for a workforce or for personal benefit.”
