Middle America was a great place to grow up, but New York was always my dream. After a raging success with high school economics class, stock market lab, and the encouragement of my parents and teacher, I somehow parlayed $500 into the thousands I needed for business school. Once I’d graduated, I made a bee-line to the city I grew up dreaming of, ready to take on the world. I love my job as a financial advisor at Seward-Wilkes, but my real passion is fashion! And yes, eek, a deliciously obscene amount of my fun money goes into filling my closet. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
