Doris has been digging into women’s financial literacy ever since she ended up nearly $400,000 in debt after her first husband’s death, when she was thirty-two. Persistence, determination, and a singular focus on results led her to climb out of debt in two years and develop a substantial real estate portfolio over the following ten years.
Doris has since been president of a local real estate investors’ organization, developed a successful Rent to Own company, and published her first book Protect Your Purse. She is now using her hard-won financial literacy to help other women rock their finances.
Not one to be satisfied with superficial answers to questions, Doris constantly scours the literature to uncover why women, on the whole, are more financially vulnerable than men, what can be done about it, and what really works.
She shares her findings, and her passion, via her blog, which is read by thousands of people around the world.
Doris is determined to use her financial experience, her knack for synthesizing complex ideas into easily-understandable chunks, and her desire for results to help women create better options for themselves and their families.
She lives in Ottawa, Canada with her husband, two daughters and their hamster.
