In her previous life, Ellie was a foreign exchange broker, a job she was in for more than a decade. Thanks to her work, she picked up an army of Hokkien words as office jargons and came to realisation the importance of money management for a fulfilling life. She continued to study how personal finances and investment can help in achieving financial freedom. As a side effect, she became over-confident and sacked her bosses one fine day.
Born and raised in Korea, Ellie came to Singapore to work in the financial sector. 16 years on, Singapore became a real home to her. She is married to a lucky husband and has two wonderful kids. She is currently working as a financial advisor, writer, blogger, and chauffeur for her kids.
Though she has poked around various areas, her main interest has always been money and its impact on a meaningful life.
