Q: What makes ACEE significant in your perspective?

Education and inspiring the next generation of learners is a responsibility we all share and the resources that ACEE provides in pursuit of this goal is truly mind boggling. Listening to stories of the brand new teacher who stayed in the profession because of the support provided by ACEE, the student who finally found a passion for learning by participating in a student economics competition, all of these narratives cement ACEE as a significant partner in the community quest for learning and I’m so proud to be part of it. 

Q: What motivates your passion for financial and economic education?

Personal finance and economics are some of those core understandings that don’t represent “another thing on your plate.” Rather, they are PART of the plate, that everything else is built on. I don’t expect every student I work with to go on to be an economist, but imagine what other futures, dreams, and possibilities they can achieve with that foundation! What bold new ideas, innovations, or career paths will transpire that might have never taken shape without this knowledge and lens to view the world through? There are so many “keys” that can be the breakthrough for something amazing in a student’s life, and I feel so privileged to be a part of the process when financial and economic education are part of those keys.
