I'm Emily Roberts, the founder of Personal Finance for PhDs and creator of this workshop.
I started out on the PhD track just like you are. I completed my PhD in biomedical engineering at Duke University in 2014 after living for seven years on a stipend.
During that time, my passion for personal finance grew and grew, as did my desire to serve my own community.
I founded my business, Personal Finance for PhDs, after I defended. Over the years, I've found many avenues to assist PhDs with their personal finances, including speaking engagements at universities, individual and group financial coaching, webinars and workshops, ebooks, and my podcast.
Investing is my favorite personal finance subject to teach! It's been instrumental to my own wealth-building journey, which started during my PhD training. I find that there is immense enthusiasm for investing among PhDs, and I don't expect this workshop to be any different.
