Women’s History Month Interview Series 2019
Welcome to TechFunnel.com’s interview series for Women’s History Month where we are celebrating female executives, CEOs, business owners, and creators across various industries.
Joining us today is Ashley M. Fox.
Ashley M. Fox is a former Wall Street analyst, a Howard University grad, and she is now an expert in her field as a Financial Education Specialist. After helping manage money for both millionaires and billionaires, during her career on Wall Street, Ashley felt that it was her God-given purpose to financially empower those Wall Street would never talk to. This passion lead her to quit her job and start her own company, Empify.
Empify (merging of the words EMPower and modIFY), is an education- based organization created to help both adults and children understand financial literacy. Empify focuses on the creation of life-altering programs, informative digital content and interactive events curated to teach all aspects of financial education. Since 2014, Empify’s programs have reached thousands of students in over 50 different schools and organizations throughout the country.
Ashley is a highly-sought after speaker who has been featured on international tours, college campuses, and keynote speaking platforms. Ashley is a financial journalist for Black Enterprise and Essence Magazine, and she has been featured on Jim Cramer’s “The Street”, Yahoo Finance, Rolling Out Magazine, Philly.com, Fox News, ABC, Huffington Post, Glamour Magazine, and Forbes.
In this interview, Ashley talks about her journey into Wall Street, the impetus to start and meaning behind EMPIFY, and how she is teaching students to become wealth builders.
