Humanity has a complex relationship with money. It affects every part of our lives, whether we think it should or not. This powerful, complex, and often misunderstood relationship is what makes personal finance so interesting to study for me.
My passion is helping people live better, happier lives through better money management. I became a professor because I saw many abuses from charlatans masquerading as ethical financial professionals and I wanted to make a difference. Whether it's teaching financial literacy to people directly or training the next generation of ethical and competent professional financial planners, my goal is to have every household have the best financial experience they can have.
