Megan Robinson

Megan graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in finance and a concentration in financial planning. Her dream has always been clear: to provide financial education and resources to as many people as possible.

After working in corporate America for a few short years upon graduation, Megan struck out on her own to see what the “laptop lifestyle” was all about. That’s when she met Ben and Jeff.

From the get-go, Megan realized that they shared the same dream of making personal financial information easy and accessible to all. That’s when she hopped on board the DollarSprout train.

Since then, Megan has become a Certified Money Coach (CMC)® where she works one on one with individuals to help them understand their money stories and develop healthy money behaviors.

Megan has been quoted in several online publications, including Discover Bank, Girlboss, U.S. News & World Report, Credit Karma, and Rize Credit.

Outside of work, Megan enjoys hiking and playing fetch with her dog, Benny, cozying up with a good book at a hole-in-the-wall cafe, and studying and teaching the lessons of yoga and mindfulness.
