Mom, Financial Literacy Advocate & Founder of Kids Money Academy

As a CPA and Finance Instructor at UCLA, having conversations with other adults about money comes naturally.

However, when my 6-year old son asked me what a FICO score is, I realized how challenging it is to explain how money works in simple terms to a child.


After doing some research, I found that there was no one single resource that shared tips on how to talk about money in simple and exciting ways with your kids. One that also provides empirical data on the benefits of early childhood financial literacy. So, I created it!

I founded Kids Money Academy to fill a huge need that empowers parents from all backgrounds to talk to their kids about money in a positive way.

Kids Money Academy answers the question, “How can I teach my kid about money in a fun and simple way?” by providing a framework that shows parents HOW to have conversations about financial literacy with their children from age 4 to 18 years old. 

At Kids Money Academy, our mission is to reach as many parents and kids as possible to instill healthy financial habits that create an abundant money mindset and legacy for wealth.As parents, the greatest gift that we can give our children that has unlimited return is a money mindset that creates an abundant and happy life.
