Elaine visits a variety of colleges and universities each year to offer guest lectures on taxes, budgeting, financial wellness, pricing strategies and more. She can work with you to determine the appropriate outcomes for her session and determine those that will best complement your existing curriculum.

She also works with career services, entrepreneurship, and student services departments at colleges and universities to provide financial programming for students and alumni to complement other services. In fact, offering just-in-time education – especially on financial topics – to alumni has been shown to be an excellent way for educational institutions to continue serving former students.
