Adrianna Domingos-Lupher is an entrepreneur, Air Force spouse, Army brat, Marine Corps sister-in-law, and personal finance guru. She wrote “Smart Money” in Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life.
She says, “I fell in love with personal finance education when I had to get creative with my job search during an overseas assignment. I couldn’t find a teaching gig, so I put in my resume to the Airman & Family Readiness Center and was hired to head up the personal financial management program. I understood the basics of managing money, but I really had to teach myself about personal finance from scratch.” She now uses her expertise as an Accredited Financial Counselor to help military families learn about managing personal finances.
