Kembala’s StoryKembala’s interest in personal finance started at the tender age of six. Like many kids her age, she was curious. During trips to the credit union, she asked her mom many questions: Where does money come from? What is a check?…
At ten, learning about money took on new meaning when her carefree way of life ended—with her parents divorce. And Kembala’s mother unexpectedly becoming a single parent, faced with the responsibility of raising three young children alone. She witnessed the financial struggles her mother had to overcome to rebuild her life.
This challenging experience taught Kembala important lessons about life and money. It also motivated her to learn more about personal finance to help others. She gained knowledge through mentors, read countless personal finance books/magazines, and worked for a large regional bank.
Kembala’s Motto in Life: “If you can perceive it, just believe it, and you will achieve it.”
