Organizing a Revolution

I never thought that I'd get the chance to work for a company like Aspiration. I spent five years working at some of the biggest financial firms in New York, but came to realize that too often Wall Street works for those with the deepest pockets while ignoring everyday investors. Every product I worked on was created for big institutions - products to help them make even more money and mitigate risk (to make sure they kept that money).

There’s nothing wrong with that, but something just never felt quite right to me about the way the system worked. Why were the financial giants not offering everyone the same opportunities and products? That disconnect bothered me and paved my way to Aspiration.

Aspiration is bringing together the worlds of finance and philanthropy as never before. I am so excited to be a part of the Aspiration team - one that combines both financial acumen and heart.
