Our Hosts, Amber & Erika
Amber Booker grew up with a value-oriented (aka cheap!) father who taught her very early on to budget and stretch a dollar. As such, she’s had a love-hate relationship with money her entire life. A lawyer by trade, Amber’s true passion is empowering people through taking difficult or intimidating information and making it accessible, enjoyable, and understandable. Having formerly worked as a prosecutor, Amber saw firsthand how money and financial resources, or the lack thereof, could easily change the trajectory of a person’s life. She currently lives in the suburbs of Dallas with her three kids and is a purveyor of virgin and remy bundles of all textures, colors, and shades.
Erika Brown has worked in corporate America since she was 20. From the time she was a child, she vowed that no one would know more about her money than her. Now that she is in the financial services industry, both her profession and passions (including Broke-ish) revolve around money. Erika lives with her husband and daughters in suburban Dallas, TX where she enjoys chicken on the bone as much as possible.
