Young Professionals & Finance

Joey Beech learned the valuable lessons of finance from the school of hard-knocks early on in life. She worked her way through college and received a degree in Business Education from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Throughout her career, Joey has worked with financial products ranging from insurance to angel investing.

When her daughter started her career, Joey saw a need for simple, objective financial information. She decided to combine both her personal stories and professional knowledge to help young people and their parents understand the impacts of daily financial decisions. The result is A Girl’s Guide to Personal Finance.

Joey lives near Des Moines, Iowa where she and her husband raised their two children.
