Hi, I'm Andra!
I am a former Financial Controller who managed $150+ million annually as part of a Fortune 300 company, gained startup experience at an Internet service provider and had many career-building years in financial management in the telecommunications industry.
My husband's career has moved us from the Midwest to the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and currently the Southwest. Each region has its benefits and shortfalls but I have enjoyed living in each one and traveling to many other destinations.
After working in corporate finance for 20+ years, I created Cache Coach because I saw a need that was greater in personal finance and even greater combined with technology.
Digital applications for personal finances were steadily becoming available via FinTech startups, banks and brokerage firms in recent years with 2020 accelerating their availability. We have successfully implemented many to substantially improve and automate our own personal finances and cyber security.
My professional background is below and also on my LinkedIn profile where I share posts on being smart using financial technology. Or if you prefer, you can opt into the same weekly distribution via e-mail.
