I worked on Wall Street as an institutional salesperson and trader for over twenty years. After my divorce I returned to the workforce and became a credit counselor for a nonprofit credit counseling agency. From speaking to thousands of clients, a co-counselor and I realized that most of our clients were women who were in financial trouble, mainly due to a lack of financial education and control over their own finances. We wrote a book to help rectify the problem: "Women Empowering Themselves: A Financial Survival Guide". I have three daughters and my hobby is martial arts- I am a black belt in karate and tae kwondo.
