About The FI Woman
Founder & CEO, The FI Woman
Certified Personal Finance Counselor
The FI Woman was initially launched in 2015 with one simple mission: to teach women how to invest in the stock market so that they could become financially independent.
The mission has since evolved to a more holistic goal of working with individuals and groups to achieve their financial goals by providing financial education, helping them connect their financial goals to their "why," and finally, developing a personalized roadmap to achieve their goals.
My story, as the founder of The FI Woman, began 20 years before my early retirement in 2021 at 44.
In 2002 I was laid off from my first job, less than a year after graduating from college. I had very little money saved and faced potential deportation and homelessness. That experience taught me the importance of being financially independent, and it proved to be the catalyst for my early retirement in 2021 at 44.
Now, as my second act, I run The FI Woman full-time, continuing with my passion for helping people take control of their finances.
In addition to running The FI Woman, I am the author of several Personal Finance books, including a book for kids that I co-authored with my 9-year-old daughter.
