056 From Math to Money, with Ann Shubert

As a girl, Ann dreamed of being an astrophysicist.  Her journey into a STEM career led her into the defense industry.  After years of success, she enrolled in an MBA program and there, during a math class, she had the opportunity to help other women understand.  That moment, when she taught until “the light came on,” and her classmates’ new confidence with math, changed them and her.  That experience would change her and shift her career from math to money.  Her dream is to support women in STEM to be comfortable building their financial success and designing their financial future.  What small financial change could you make that would end in financial freedom?

Ann Shubert started her professional career planning to be an astrophysicist, receiving a BA in Physics from Princeton University and an MS in Astrophysics from the California Institute of Technology.  After realizing that she was not cut out to be a pure research scientist, Ann shifted gears into a 30-year career in the defense industry, first designing and building software systems and later managing multi-million-dollar aerospace programs.  In 2014, while enrolled in the University of New Mexico’s Executive MBA program, Ann made another major career transition, becoming a licensed Financial Advisor.  Three years later, she co-founded Intentional Finance LLC, an independent, woman-owned, Registered Investment Adviser firm.  Ann enjoys working with women in STEM, combining science-based approaches to financial planning, risk management and investing with her interest in behavioral finance and how people make decisions about money.  Because she knows what it is like to be a woman in a male dominated workplace, Ann feels a special kinship with women in the STEM fields, and loves helping them to reach a place of confidence about their finances so they can keep their energies focused on their STEM passion, whether in research, education or business.
