About Me

 

Hi everyone! My name is Courtney and I run Your Average Dough. I live in Westchester County, NY. I am currently working as an accountant for a non-profit; however, in the past I worked as a financial analyst for a Fortune 100 company and, prior to that, as an auditor with one of the Big 4. I have a bachelor’s degree in accounting, I have a MBA and I am a CPA.

I decided to start this blog to share my thoughts on various financial topics. My husband and I are both accountants (in different industries) and, therefore, constantly talk about money and finances. Our friends often look to us for advice or help, so I decided why not start a blog about personal finance and share it with a bigger population. The name “Your Average Dough” is a play on “average Joe” because this is who my blog is geared towards. The goal here is to just share thoughts and advice based on personal experience and research with the average Joe who is striving for a better financial life (this is a continuing journey for all of us). I hope you enjoy what I have to share!
