OUR STORY

In over two decades of reporting on personal finance — talking to real people about their real money — our CEO and co-founder Jean Chatzky realized that contrary to public opinion when it comes to money, women are different. Maybe not in the investments we need to own, but in how we view money and want to use money to create change … in our own financial lives, the lives of the people we love and in the world. We’re also different in the way we want to communicate about it. It’s when we’re with other women that we’re inspired to change. HerMoney.com — with its daily content, newsletters and podcasts — is the result. We are your judgment-free zone for all things financial. And we are focused on changing our relationships with money… one woman at a time.

Meet Jean

Jean Chatzky, CEO and co-founder of HerMoney, is the financial editor of NBC’s “Today” show, the best-selling author of 11 books, an award-winning magazine columnist and the host of the HerMoney podcast. She was also an English major in college. Through decades of reporting on personal finance, she learned that a) the jargon-filled speak of the financial industry was created (largely by men) to sell you stuff you don’t need, and b) if you eliminate the jargon there is absolutely no rocket science to money. She knows that a full, successful financial life is within every woman’s grasp — and with the HerMoney team, she’s on a mission to help you get it. Find her @JeanChatzky on Twitter.

Meet The Team

Kathryn Tuggle serves at HerMoney’s Editor-in-Chief and as the Producer of our weekly HerMoney podcast. Over the last 15 years, she’s written and edited for Inc. Magazine, Fast Company, FoxBusiness, TheStreet, The Wall Street Journal, and many others. Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Kathryn was raised by a family of savers who grew their own food and turned thrift store shopping into an art form. Kathryn is proud to call New York City home, but gets back down south as often as she can for Alabama football and front porch gossip. In her free time, she’s actively involved with the Native American Journalists Association and enjoys practicing yoga. Find her on Twitter and Instagram @KathrynTuggle.

Dayana Yochim is HerMoney’s Senior Writer/Editor. She’s been translating Wall Street-speak into plain English for 20-plus years, cutting complex personal finance topics down to size. Her priors include stints at NerdWallet, the Motley Fool and Worth magazine. She’s helped launch two podcasts (Motley Fool Answers and NerdWallet’s Smart Money), written or co-written three personal finance books and has appeared on the “Today” show, “Good Morning America,” CNN and that one episode of “Life & Style” with Kimora Lee Simmons (who was lovely and very, very tall in real life). When she’s not overusing parentheticals, you can find Dayana cavorting with dogs, practicing the cello and redecorating your living room if you’ll let her. Catch her on Twitter @DayanaYochim.  

Jessica Patel is HerMoney’s Chief Growth Officer. She has spent her award-winning career in the editorial space, first as a journalist, and later a business leader, identifying the best ways to monetize content while still making it appealing to readers. She often works in the start-up space, building brands, creating content strategies and identifying product opportunities. She recently made a cross-country road trip with her family to live on an island off the coast of Florida.

Rebecca Cohen, HerMoney’s Social Media Manager and Jean Chatzky’s assistant, is a graduate of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland. She was raised in New Jersey but is a New York City girl at heart. Outside of the office, you can find her keeping up with all the latest online trends, catching a Broadway show, relaxing with a great book, or exploring what NYC has to offer. Find her on Twitter @beccamcohen.

Sharon Wolin is HerMoney’s Operations Manager. She spends her time ensuring things run smoothly behind the scenes at HerMoney and as a member of our marketing team. Sharon was a finance major in college and her friends often make fun of the fact that she’s been operating off of a strict budget since the day she graduated from college – accounting for every penny. Sharon brings her penchant for organization and creativity to the HerMoney team. She lives in Briarcliff Manor, NY with her family.
