Best Story

My mom thought I was good with money when I was a child because I was "frugal like my dad." Those words marked my career as a finance professional.

Origin Story

I grew up in the countryside in the Dominican Republic and knew I wanted to be an accountant at the age of 19. I loved numbers and money! My journey took me from working in the billing department for an architecture firm to being the controller of a tech startup. Now I own an accounting practice, FiBric, and I'm the author of Simple Choices Big Rewards in Money.
