April 8th – How To Align Your Personal Finances With Your Small Business, @kemwashcpa. Growing up in the heart of New Orleans, it is the different spelling of her name, family makeup and unique career path, which makes Kemberley Washington – “Kem.” She compares her different experiences in life to a good bowl of gumbo. It may not look so good going in, but simply magical coming out. The good, the bad, and the ugly, she would not change a thing! Being raised by a single mother who worked as a teacher, failing was not an option. Her mother taught during the day and worked various part-time jobs in the evenings to support her and her three siblings. In addition to her mother, she also credits her father for who she is today. He provided her the opportunity to work as an accounting clerk during her teenage years. After graduating from Southern University and A&M College, she worked with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as both a Criminal Investigator and a Revenue Agent. After realizing carrying a gun wasn’t her thing, she pursued the calling on her life – to write and educate. Today, she can be seen on Fox 8 Morning Edition, WDSU-TV and other local media outlets. Kem has contributed to Bankrate.com, FoxBusiness.com, Jet Magazine, Yahoo Finance, and more. Also, she is the author of The B.A.D.G.E. Financial Planner, 21 Days of Victorious Living and more. Kem also teaches undergraduate business students at Dillard University. For more info, visit www.kemberley.com
