The financial situation at home was always difficult. Like many women of her generation, my mother had little control over the family finances. She ultimately went back to school so she could make her own choices and survive on her own.
Watching my mom struggle to get through this was very heart-wrenching. I give her so much credit for going back to school later in life and becoming an occupational therapist.
My mission is to help empower women with financial education and resources as I never want to see another woman go through what my mother did.
At Apprise, I have the privilege of working with amazing, affluent women who are looking to gain clarity about their financial future. I ask questions to help clients better align their spending with what matters most in their life. I also plan to start a small scholarship that grows over time to honor my mother’s memory. It will help women who – like my mom – return to school later in life.
