“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” – Maya Angelou

Meet The Founder

I believe that Personal Finance can be easy given the right information and tools. This is why Woman & Finance was born; Out of my desire and passion to educate, equip and simplify how money works so that women (and men) can be inspired to pursue and achieve financial independence.


“Even the smallest education/information on personal finance can make a huge difference in  women’s financial future and wealth, after all, women are the bearers of generational wealth.”
