Sandra G. Strothers, Ph.D.
JAG New Jersey Conference Chair
We were delighted that Ms. Llarena accepted our invitation to serve as presenter for the Jobs for America’s Graduates Career Development Conference at Monmouth University, New Jersey. Her presentation on financial literacy to high school students was more than informative. Students remained engaged as she shared relevant anecdotes and facilitated collaborative group work to aid students in recognizing financial belief systems, where they emanate, and how to adjust one’s thinking about spending and saving that will result in a good quality of life beyond high school. Her experience in working with various audiences was evident, and her professionalism in working with our conference team was welcomed and appreciated. We hope Ms. Llarena will continue to share essential knowledge with our students in the future.
