Why work with EYF? "I know from personal experience that it takes a long time to catch up to the kids who grew up with financial literacy. I had to figure it out on my own and anything I can do to make that easier for others would be great."

What does being an advisor for EYF mean to you? "Being an Advisor at EYF is giving me a chance to use decades of experience to help a great group of caring, engaged, committed EYFers change the world. "
