I am a self-proclaimed money nerd! I love spreadsheets. I watched PBS specials about retirement for fun!

There’s a difference between “good” with money and knowing how to build wealth. The truth is, I was good at staying out of credit card debt. I had so much to learn about managing and growing my money.

I am a natural spender. I love a good sale. I was proof that having a high-income didn’t mean I knew how to manage my money. I was born and raised in New York City. I spent most of my life living in the the Bronx. I am a Latina, first generation college graduate and daughter of an immigrant.

I moved to California for an amazing job opportunity and negotiated my salary to more than double what I was making.

Unfortunately, I didn’t understand money or building wealth. I didn’t grow up looking at stock charts with my dad or balancing the checkbook with my mom. We didn’t talk about money much in my family.

At 24 years old I was making more than ever before and I had no idea what to do once my bills were paid. Naturally, I began to spend and spend. I set very little money aside every month. I bought shoes, clothes, handbags and rarely did I cook at home.
