Meet the Wealthy Habits Team
We couldn’t ask for a more passionate and dedicated group of individuals.
We are also very appreciative of our Board of Trustees and the support of our donors and sponsors.
Not part of the actual paid staff but an integral part of the team, I formed the non-profit that funds the Wealthy Habits programs in 2009. I have always realized the need for financial literacy and believe we can make a positive difference in the next generation. As a Trustee, my goal is to provide guidance and assistance to the staff to improve and grow the organization and its programs.
I have always had the entrepreneurial mindset, building home-based businesses over the years that allowed me to be there for my children when they were younger. Coming aboard in 2011 allowed me to use my skills as an entrepreneur and my experience as a mom to build a great organization allowing me to educate and lead students as well as make an impact on the instructors and staff.
Building the organization from the ground up wasn’t easy by any means, but the lessons I have learned along the way have made both the organization and myself better. I have learned to look at the why and not just see things for what they are. I look forward to growing the organization and learning ways to improve myself along the way.
Starting as a 2018 intern instructor, I learned how important it is to present the information in a way the students would understand and relate to. I am thrilled to use that experience to continue to make improvements toward future programs that have such a positive impact on the students we teach.
As a member of the Wealthy Habits team, I see myself growing alongside the organization. We have an extremely collaborative environment that leaves so much room for growth. This collaboration allows us to learn from each other things we would otherwise not understand. Being a part of each decision along the way has allowed me to see the results of our hard work and dedication. I look forward to building my career with the organization.
With an MBA and experience as a Jr. Financial Analyst, I am prepared to assist in growing the organization to reach its full potential. My past experiences of living in Nepal have shown me the importance of being philanthropic. Working as a Business Strategist with the organization allows me to do both.
Working so closely with the entire team has allowed me to be creative in the way I view the business side of the organization. In an environment where learning and succeeding is the main goal, I have acquired skills outside of my expectations. Whether it is professionalism, communication, team-work, software or simply handling unexpected contingencies, I feel like my role in the team truly matters.
I have joined in the organization with an ambition of making changes on people’s well-beings. Graduated from Emory in 2018 with a degree of MPH specializing in health policy and management, I have developed strong interests in how education can impact on population health. Working as a Behavioral Specialist in Wealthy Habits allows me to observe and analyze teenager’s behavioral health and mental health throughout the program. By initiating intervention policies on teenagers’ behavioral health, we would love to see teenagers walk out of program with a changing mindset and positive behaviors.
Wealthy habit’s mission that empower the next generation has greatly resonated with my goal as a public health person. I feel honored to work with these wonderful skilled professionals to push our organization further. I can’t wait to see how much positive influence we can bring in to every teen we’ve taught.

Joining the Wealthy Habits team shortly after graduating with a degree in Media Arts, I have been able to independently grow my skills in various areas. I have a passion for educating children and design making this opportunity a great fit.
Freelancing for the organization on a number of major projects, like the Teacher Training Guide and the Camp workbooks has allowed me to utilize my skills while growing my own knowledge in personal finance. Additionally, I have been able to increase my skill-set by assisting in the advertising and marketing efforts of the organization. I am looking forward to many more projects with the organization in the future.
