Tara Falcone, CFA, CFP
Tara grew up in a blue collar family, and had to learn how to manage money wisely while in school. She received a full ride scholarship to Yale University, and originally planned on applying to medical school. But after a turn of events, she ended up working at an investment firm…with zero experience in the financial industry! Fast forward to today, she is now a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Certified Financial Planner (CFP), and founded ReisUP to help other young adults take control of their personal finances. Through her free online resources, courses, and masterclass, Tara helps millennials better understand money management and investing and improve their financial literacy.
