I’m a New York Times #1 Best Selling Author of 27 books all empowering families (and their kids) to take charge of their financial lives. I make money lessons fun, interesting and a family affair. I also speak the new language of kids: mobile video gaming. I’ve released 3 free iOS money games, two hitting #1 in Educational Gaming. The latest is, GreenStreets: Heifer International. I’ve been in the financial world for over 40 years, beginning my career as one of the first female executives in banking at Chase. I then went on to create the topic of “kids & money” while serving as president of The First Women’s Bank. I opened The First Children’s Bank at FAO Schwarz in 1988 and was also part of the Institute for Youth Entrepreneurship in Harlem. The topic of teaching kids (and their parents and grandparents) took off, as did my literary career, after 13 appearances on Oprah, Good Morning America, Today Show, CNN, among others. I’m a graduate of School of International Service and The American University. I live in Chester NJ and have two wonderful kids as well as two even more wonderful grandkids.
