Over the past 15 years, I’ve shared my knowledge and passion for finance with thousands of students in workshops, at conferences, on tours, and in my virtual classroom.
I’ve successfully translated and navigated the world of finance for students in programs offered through my top-rated Wall Street walking tour / education company WALL STREET WALKS, and since 2020, have been teaching students to be “money smart” online in my unique TEACH ME WALL STREET boot-camps.
Prior to becoming an educator and entrepreneur, I spent 10 years working in the Banking and Compliance departments of Morgan Stanley and worked 2 years independently as a day trader.
My programs have been featured on CNN International and in The Daily Telegraph, Newsday and USA Today.
How I got here,
My Wall Street Walks in-person tours take people through the heart of New York's financial district. People learn about how the stock market works, what role related financial institutions play and how everything comes together.
Many school groups have taken my tour. Teachers return annually to bring new students. Kids get an opportunity to walk through history and see that the stock exchange and the stock market is real - not just a game.
I have spoken at many conferences New Jersey Educational Association (NJEA), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Independent Educational Consultant Association (IECA), as well as hosted many educational workshops. I was also featured by CNN International in 2015.
Why I do it,
I LOVE teaching and seeing how the complicated world of Wall Street becomes easy and understandable for my students. I wish someone taught me what I now teach when I was the age of my students. It would have avoided many of my starting out mistakes.
