Quote from Maya E. Dollarhide

"I enjoy helping people, especially families, learn more about how to maximize their time and money. It's rewarding to report on and write about the best ways to plan for retirement, budget household expenditures, or how to purchase big-ticket items, like a home, vacation, or saving for college."
