"I'm a Willow Woman because...I've had to rely on myself - and only myself - for all of my working years. I started stashing money away in my 20s when I landed my first job as a financial journalist. Over the years, I have since seen the freedom and flexibility that come with good monetary habits and am happy to be part of Willow's mission to help others find their financial way on their path to empowerment."
