More About the Author
Ornella Grosz unceasing passion for financial literacy began at home. Coming from a household that lived paycheck to paycheck, she watched as her parents navigated through the murky waters of finance through trial and error. As she grew up, she made the conscious decision to educate myself to every aspect of financial and money management, so she could be prepared for the road ahead. Although her interest in financial literacy flourished in college, she noticed many young adults were falling between the cracks when it came to managing their own money after college. In addition, she understands young adult's need of feeling empowered when making their own decisions. Many young adults don't like being told what they have to do. She understands all to well the apprehensiveness of young adults when told what they have to do. Furthermore, she has seen how people in her generation are getting more and more interested in their own finances, but don't know where to begin. Ornella Grosz understands that as long as young adults have gathered the proper information, they will be well equipped to make an informed decision on their own.
For the past 6 years, she has been working in the financial industry. She holds a BS in Finance from California State University of Northridge. Currently, her experience has qualified her for her role as a Retirement Planner with the Teacher's Retirement System of Georgia, a personal finance writer for Cotton Candy Magazine, and co-creator of iGrad's "Money Mysteries" series.
