In August 2021, I quit my job in healthcare services in Ohio, signed a lease in Washington, and began an amazing yet terrifying 2500-mile road trip with my Border Collie, Mika.
I didn’t know it at the time, but within a month of moving, I made the (relatively easy) decision to call Seattle my forever home. I took these drastic life changes with excitement about taking my first steps towards a career in financial planning!
In my family, the discussion of financial literacy took as much space as forks did at our Korean dinner table. Had my parents known about the financial tools available to them or had someone guided them, they could have spent more time celebrating life rather than worrying about it.
I wish I could have shared with my parents what I know now, but as Soren Kierkegaard wrote, “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
So here I am for the new graduates who are navigating their first and largest positive cash flow, the brilliant women who are their hometown’s success story yet still feel inadequate in their finances, and those who simply want to learn more.
I joined the Flow team because Flow seemed like my kind of girl and, frankly, a lot like me. She’s capable, witty, down to earth and smart with her finances. She loves anything you can call a pet and starts her mornings with today’s Wordle.
I am currently enrolled in Boston University’s Financial Planning Certificate Program and on the Apprenticeship pathway to become a CFP®️ professional.
Hiking with Mika is my favorite thing to do, aside from turning my TV into a karaoke machine. In an effort to stay active during the drizzly winters, I recently took up bowling, climbing and snowboarding.
