I help people understand money and finance. The inspiration for Napkin Finance was my own struggles as an MBA student at Harvard Business School. I come from a liberal arts background and it was very difficult keeping up with the former bankers and consultants in finance classes. I am a visual thinker, as are many other people. For my own purposes, I have always sketched images to help break down complex topics, especially dealing with money and finance. I started sketching different topics on napkins as a personal tool and passion project, but saw that the napkins seemed to resonate with quite a few people. What started with one napkin has grown into hundreds of illustrations.
Time with my family!
Lack of humbleness.
Both my parents. They have gone through life with determination and love and have always been there for the people who have needed them.
I would not change a thing.
We have built an amazing company in a very short amount of time. Our reach (over 80 million people in the U.S.) is remarkable given our size.
Sometimes. But I look around and think that if someone else can do it, why can't I. What I do feel is very lucky to have the opportunities that have come my way.
Read people's minds.
Helping empower people to make better financial decisions.
Not always enjoying the moment.
It's hard to not define yourself by both. I think they balance me out since I have plenty of each :)
Being far away from people that I love.
I am honored.
Humor, loyalty, and knowing how to enjoy life.
Oprah, Sara Blakely and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Enjoy the present.
Polished and empowered!
Definitely, Bossy Gloss in #Blush. It shimmers ever so slightly and makes me feel prepared to conquer all of my fears!

Be patient. Everything in its own time.

I am a human rights attorney, specialized in women’s rights. I think that I was born to work on social justice issues. My whole life I’ve been asking the same question: why is no one talking about what is happening to women and girls. This is what led me to found Women’s Link almost 20 years ago - to fight for the human rights of women and girls around the world.
