Lily obtained two bachelor degrees, one in finance and one in computer science because she couldn't make up her mind which she loved more.

After four years in software development she realized that her true passion was finance, specifically personal finance. To that end she switched careers and started working as a financial advisor and obtained her certified financial planning designation.

She wants to help people control their money and not allow it to control them.

She believes money should be a tool to better people's lives rather than an obstacle to their dreams.

She believes that everyone has the capability to control their money, they might just need a nudge (or a rather large push) in the right direction.

Currently Lily is on hiatus from work having achieved her financial goal of saving enough money for retirement by age 35.

Now she just has to decide what to do with the next 30 years.
