About the author
“People like to say money doesn’t matter, but that’s not true. When we are in control of our finances and have good financial health, every area of our lives benefits. From our health, to our careers, to our relationships, being financially well can improve all areas of our life. The first step towards financial wellness is knowledge and I hope that my work provides people with the tools they need to make the right financial decisions for them.” - Jacqueline DeMarco
During college, Jacqueline interned at a retirement plan advisory firm and was tasked with creating a presentation on the importance of financial wellness. During her research into how money can affect our health, relationships and career, Jacqueline realized just how important financial education is.
Jacqueline has worked with more than a dozen financial brands, including LendingTree, Credit Karma, Fundera, Chime, MagnifyMoney, Student Loan Hero, ValuePenguin, SoFi and Northwestern Mutual, providing thoughtful content to give readers insight into complex topics that they likely didn’t learn in school.
