Who is Penny Farthing?
I, Penny Farthing (non-wizarding name Kerry Read), actually have a day job in the world of finance. This blog came into being because of my deep and abiding love for geeks and Personal Finance.
Back in the 90’s I got my Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I turned those research and data skills into a 15-year career doing Marketing Research for mostly high-tech companies. Thus the deep and abiding love for geeks.
But then the Financial Life Planning Train roared into my life. I hopped on gleefully, hoping to use my geeky skills for good…to help geeks! This blog represents my Chapter 2 career and my passion. I want to help geeks live the lives they want by making smart money decisions.
