Gayle Skiera and The Money Academy Team

Gayle is the founder and CEO of The Money Academy, which provides hands-on experience with money, coupled with lessons on key financial distinctions, that empower kids to see the value of using money as a tool for creating wealth.

Kids of all ages create their own plan for using money that includes the habit of saving to invest, to donate, and to plan for large purchases. The interest in these clubs spread quickly and they are now in school all over Austin.
