Megan Robinson

Managing Editor

Megan graduated from Virginia Tech in 2015 with a degree in finance and a concentration in financial planning. Her dream has always been clear: to provide financial education and resources to as many people as possible.

After working in corporate America for a few short years upon graduation, Megan struck out on her own to see what the “laptop lifestyle” was all about. That’s when she met Ben and Jeff.

From the get-go, Megan realized that they shared the same dream of making personal financial information easy and accessible to all.

Since then, Megan has become a Certified Money Coach (CMC)® where she works one on one with clients at Goodbye to Broke to help them understand their money stories and develop healthy money behaviors.

Megan has been quoted in several online publications, including Parade, Citi, Finder, Discover Bank, Girlboss, Best Company, U.S. News & World Report, Credit Karma, Chime Bank, NAFE, Quicken Loans, Business Insider, and The Points Guy.

Outside of work, Megan enjoys hiking and playing fetch with her dog, Benny, cozying up with a good book at a hole-in-the-wall cafe, and studying and teaching the lessons of yoga and mindfulness.
