About the Author
The single most successful fundraiser in the history of PBS, Orman has received an unprecedented eight Gracie Awards, which recognize the nation's best radio, television, and cable programming by, for, and about women. Twice named to the TIME 100 and ranked among the World's 100 Most Powerful Women by Forbes, Orman was the host of The Suze Orman Show on CNBC for 13 years and a contributing editor to O: The Oprah Magazine for 16. Some may say, however, that her true claim to fame is having been spoofed on Saturday Night Live four times.
Orman's incredible journey to becoming America's most recognized expert on personal finance began as a young broker at Merrill Lynch, helping clients of all backgrounds create a financially secure retirement plan. Orman was an account executive at Merrill Lynch from 1980 to 1983, served as Vice President-Investments for Prudential-Bache Securities from 1983 to 1987, then directed the Suze Orman Financial Group from 1987 to 1997.
Currently, Orman hosts the popular Women & Money podcast, serves as the official personal-finance educator for the United States Army and Army Reserve, and is a special advocate for the National Domestic Violence Hotline, bringing her message of awareness and empowerment to women who have suffered financial abuse. On her days off, you will find Suze and her wife, KT, spending time out on the water in the Bahamas, following their newfound passion for wahoo fishing.
