Andrea has worked in finance in just about every area: as a financial analyst, tax preparer, loan originator, personal banker, and as a small business owner. Dissatisfied with the corporate environment, she launched her first business in 2002. She's contributed to a range of financial publications, including Investopedia and The Balance. Andrea now uses her vast experience to educate others in personal finance on YouTube and in small business management via her small business consultancy, Aspirify.


Andrea received a BBA from the University of Iowa and an MBA from Creighton University.
