I've been a firefighter/paramedic with a large Metro Atlanta department since 2014.
It didn't take long to recognize firefighters lacked training about money. HR folks throw around letters and numbers—457(b), 401(k), HSA, etc.— like everyone understands what that is. The truth is, most people don't.
After personally feeling the impact of becoming debt-free and getting on the path to financial freedom, I decided to educate myself on all things money.
That journey led me to complete the Certified Financial Planner™ coursework through the University of Georgia and start a financial planning firm serving our firefighter community.
I've moved on from financial planning and now focus on helping firefighters with their mental, physical, and financial fitness through teaching, writing, and podcasting.
