What got you interested in this field?

It was not until after college that I began to understand the value of finance. Making wise decisions with money matters to everyone – businesses, families, schools and churches. Understanding its importance led me on a journey of reading and discovery which has fascinated and challenged me ever since. I enjoy the process of learning and in finance have found a field where the learning never has to stop.
