After coming to Mississippi in 2015, she quickly acquired a taste for sweet tea and now feels as though this is her second home. We are excited about our summer together and look forward to learning from each other.
“Sometimes I am taken aback by my dear friends who unlike me did not have parents who read to them financial books as children; for that matter, even spoke about finances at all.

Through this industry, I am able to share what my parents shared with me: a love for finance and people.” … Bella LaRosa
