Summer Series: Making Lemonade with Noa Rodriguez-Hoffman
Last night on NGPF's Speaker Series virtual PD, we had an incredible conversation with Shelley Miles, CEO of the Singleton Foundation and Noa Rodriguez-Hoffman, their Director of Editorial and Community Engagement. These incredibly inspiring and accomplished women discussed their career paths and personal passions for creativity within the financial sector. Noa is a Certified Financial Planner and hosts the series Making Lemonade.
