The National Financial Educators Council announces Jayne Black, 2013 Mrs. Wisconsin International, as their National Financial Literacy Ambassador. Mrs. Black has been a financial literacy advocate devoted to increasing the financial skills of women and families. Now she takes on an expanded role with the NFEC’s national campaign.
The NFEC’s Financial EduNation Campaign supports the monetary skill development of people across the country. The financial education programs, tools and material provide people the knowledge and confidence to take effective action towards their financial future. Combined with the awareness initiative that features high-profile personalities like Mrs. Black, the NFEC plans to reach millions across the country with the message of financial literacy.
Jayne Black is the Founder of Saving Smart for Five Generations and a graduate from the Wisconsin Women’s Network Policy Institute. She is actively working on public policies to strengthen the financial security of elderly women in Wisconsin. Jayne is a professional blogger and writer for Forbes Women, Money Wi$e Women, Mom’s Everyday and The National Association of Female Executives.
“Jayne’s accomplishments and passion for promoting financial literacy made her a perfect fit for our National Ambassador program. Because of her notoriety we will be able to reach more people and help them overcome the financial challenges many face today,” states Vince Shorb, CMO of the National Financial Educators Council.
Jayne Black comments, “It is an honor to have been selected to be the National Financial Literacy Ambassador. I have a deep respect for the work that the National Financial Educators Council does. We share the same passion to do all we can to help improve the lives of people globally with effective financial education solutions. I see every day how lack of financial skills affects people’s lives negatively. The ramifications of making poor financial decisions can last sometimes for years. Watching my mother live her retirement years in poverty due to poor financial skills and lack of saving lite a fire in my heart and under my feet. I want to make sure that every person has the opportunity to receive quality financial education and to know how gaining greater financial education skills can literally impact the quality of your life.”
Mrs. Black will be expanding her reach with the NFEC to benefit people across the country with the message of financial literacy. Her stated goal is to change people’s lives on a global level with effective financial education which will result in increased financial security. I also want to create awareness to a very important fact and that is our financial health is interconnected to our physical health. Becoming financially educated not only improves your financial health it also helps improve your physical health because stress in this case financial stress plays a role in many physical illnesses including high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.
