I write, speak and teach about making smart money and life choices. My new personal finance guide for moms, “Smart Mom, Rich Mom,” is now available! The New York Times calls it “solid” and witty” and Foreword Reviews says it brings out the “fun” in “funds.”

My previous book, The Economy of You: Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur and Recession-Proof Your Life (January 2014, AMACOM), tells the stories of 100 successful side-giggers who built financial security by launching side-businesses. (I also share the story of my own Etsy shop of money planners.) I was the the senior money editor at US News & World Report for nine years and am also the author of Generation Earn: The Young Professional’s Guide to Spending, Investing, and Giving Back.

I live with my family, including my two children, in the Washington, D.C. area.
