Meet our Peer Financial Educators

Andrew Klaiber
Major: Financial Services

I became a financial education peer because I saw how little financial literacy is addressed in our society. I wanted to be able to bridge the gap and help reach students that are trying to learn the various topics that affect their financial health.

Ryan Murray
Major: FInance

I became a financial education peer because I love all aspects of money. How it works, why it works and how to make more of it.

Just like many others, I don't have much money so I thought it would be great to learn and share financially sound information with my peers.

Money seems to be the root of all our problems so we are here to help. Go Aztecs!

Major: Finance

I became a financial education peer to gain experience for my future. I have always enjoyed everything about finance and love having the opportunity to help people as well.

As a financial educator, I hope to assist anyone in need and develop the financial literacy of my fellow students.
