Meet The Speakers
Carmen Falcon, AARP Volunteer
Carmen started planning for her financial future even when her starting salary was $ 250.00 a week and as she advanced in her career. Her main message is this - In financial preparedness, resources and ways to financial security is available to anyone. With discipline, anyone can search for ways and be educated on how to reach their goal and be financially secure. Being financially prepared helped her most especially when she got laid off from work. Then, after getting laid off, she became a caregiver to her dad. She was financially prepared for all her unexpected life changes and challenges.
