Kara Stevens is the founder of The Frugal Feminista, a NYC-based personal finance and personal development company committed to helping women live life on their own terms unapologetically.
After climbing her way out of $65K worth of student loan and credit card debt, and building up her financial reserves, Kara soon saw the link between personal power and financial freedom; and wanted to inspire and educate women around the world to do the same.
A teacher, historian, connector, and activist at heart, Kara wants to lead a “frugal feminista” revolution– to change money conversations between girlfriends, between husbands and wives, and between mothers and daughters. She is the author of heal your relationship with money, Unmasking the Strong Black Woman, and The Happy Finances Challenge (forthcoming) Don’t Let Him Touch Your Assets (forthcoming).
Ms. Stevens is a native New Yorker and first-generation American via the beautiful island of Antigua. She possesses a BA in Political Science from Oberlin College, a MSEd in Bilingual Education from CUNY’s Hunter College and an EdM in Organizational Leadership from Columbia University’s Teachers College.
Kara and her message of financial empowerment and authentic living have been featured on Yahoo Finance, Women’s Day, Nerd Wallet, The Washington Post, and The Huffington Post.
