Soledad is a former math teacher turned personal finance enthusiast. While sick on medical leave in March 2019, she started to develop her financial literacy by reading books, listening to podcasts, and watching YouTube videos. By May 2019, she decided to become the Chief Financial Officer for a small start-up called the "Puro Party Paulinos" aka her family of four. Within 19 months in this new role, Soledad used zero-based budgeting to pay off about $23k in student loan debt, save a 6-month emergency fund, max out IRAs for her husband and herself, and maxed out her husband's 401k account. Soledad loves talking dinero and is passionate about making personal finance information more accessible for all.
