My best All Peoples story: I sat down with and enrolled a Family of 10.  This family was especially unique because they were multi-cultural and most of the children were adopted.  The parents were experiencing some financial troubles so I registered them for financial literacy classes here at All Peoples.  Less than a year later the family was able to find over $800 in unclaimed money due to the information they received.  They were also able to save $1500 and pay off two family vehicles which increased their credit score by 80 points!  The family and I have an amazing relationship and it all started because of the service I was able to provide thanks to All Peoples.

Hobbies: I love to help others.  I also love to cook, paint and draw.  I love all the Arts.
