Ms. Morris is the author of Teen Money 101 and founder of Your Money Trek (YMT). Your Money Trek specializes in financial literacy education through literature, seminars, workshops, symposia, and speaking engagements. YMT’s vision is to take our financial literacy message worldwide, promoting money management as a means of promoting dignity in all seasons of life.
Morris holds a post-MBA Certificate in Accounting, an MBA in Computer Information Systems, from Pace University, NY, and a BA in Economics from the University of the West Indies, where she was a college track star. She also holds the financial and insurance certifications for a Financial Advisor (Series 6, 63, and 65). Her diverse professional background includes global leasing, finance, consulting, information technology strategy and complex project management for Fortune 500 companies. Morris spent the majority of her corporate career at IBM Corporation in a variety of roles. Her work and travels to the Latin American countries are among her favorite IBM experiences.
Morris credits her zeal for education to her late father, Stanley McLean Morris, who was a school principal and veteran educator in the Caribbean. Morris’s interest in writing and teaching comes from a desire to pass on her father’s legacy of education as a form of empowerment.
Her passions are speaking, teaching, and inspiring people through financial education. Her overall goal is to enable people to have the very best quality of life. She does this by encouraging ongoing education on money management with businesses, churches, non-profit organizations, retirees, college and adult groups, teenagers, and others.
Civic duties have long been a part of Morris’s mission to “give back.” Her volunteer activities have included: classroom teaching for Junior Achievement, the Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC); a variety of alumni speaking engagements for her alma mater, Pace University; Treasurer and member of the Board of Directors of the Greenwich, CT YWCA; membership of the United Way of Greenwich Allocations Committee; as a teacher for Literacy Volunteers of America teaching English as a Second Language; George Washington Carver Center; and through many one-on-one mentoring opportunities over the years. Morris believes that teaching others is never in vain. She currently resides in Connecticut, U.S.A where she continues to write, teach, speak, and travel internationally.
