A little about me:

I’ve always been interested in money. When I was young I used to count every penny in my piggy bank at least once a week. I’d stack the coins and take pictures of them. I constantly asked my parents what I could do around the house to earn extra money. We didn’t have a lot growing up, so I appreciated everything I had and everything we did as a family.

In high school my dad signed me up for a checking account and taught me a little about how to manage money. I held a few odd jobs like mowing grass for neighbors and working in fast food, and used the money I earned to save up for things I wanted. Through these jobs I learned the importance of hard work and the value of a dollar.

I graduated from West Virginia University in 2008 with a B.S. in Business Administration.
