About Dr. Ann
Yes, I have plenty of initials in front and behind my name, but when I was a young enlisted member in the military, I didn’t always make smart decisions when it came to my money. Research has indicated 54% of military personnel live paycheck to paycheck. Unfortunately, I was part of that statistic for many years. After securing a high-interest loan, I purchased my first car although I didn’t know how to drive it. On top of that, I maxed out the limits on all my department store credit cards.
All of that behavior changed when I unexpectedly became a single mother after a failed marriage. I didn’t want to continue feeling constantly stressed out from my lack of discipline around my finances. Instead, I wanted to buckle down and focus on providing a happy and stable life for my daughter who was later diagnosed with Autism. With a made-up mind and a plan of action, I was able to pay off over $24,000 in consumer debt. I now own my home free and clear by paying off $180,0000 in mortgage debt in 3.5 years, paid cash for a car, and go on annual vacations with friends and family. In my opinion, that’s financial freedom and if I can do it...YOU CAN TOO!!!!
I truly believe that knowledge is power and since retiring from the Air Force, I’ve earned a Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership from Grand Canyon University and completed the rigors requirements to be recognized as an Accredited Financial Counselor.
