Lessons learned early last a lifetime.  - Julie Beckham aka “Ms. Money” 

Not everyone thinks personal finance is a topic to sing about, but Julie Beckham has made a career out of it. Since April is Financial Literacy Month, we thought we’d invite her on to the show. Now the AVP/Financial Education Development & Strategy Officer at Rockland Trust Bank, Julie was tasked by the previous owner, Blue Hills Bank, with expanding its commitment to the community by finding a way to educate children about money.  Always up for a challenge, Julie tapped into her wealth of experience as an actress and singer to create her persona “Ms. Money” and her musical, “Ms.Money & the Coins.”   For the last 13 years, she’s been sharing this entertaining curriculum with children here in the United States and around the world    What started as an idea to teach children about money turned into a multilingual video-based program, complete with interactive learning modules.   Says Julie:  “If I can make something fun for children and easy for teachers, that’s a win-win.”  Born and raised in Canton, Massachusetts, Julie’s love for the theatre was hatched in the fifth grade when she landed the role of Dorothy in her elementary school’s production of The Wizard of Oz.  A graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Julie was a working actor for years before returning home to be a hands-on aunt to her newborn niece, Lucy, born with Downs Syndrome. Says Julie:  “The world stopped, and we needed each other.   You discover what the epicenter of YOU is, and for me, that’s family.”   The mother of two children, Julie shares her belief that “it is crucial for parents to share their mistakes.  How we handle mistakes is important for our children to see, including mistakes about money.”  And just in case you’re feeling left out, Julie has a podcast series about money for adults, too, called “No Shame in this Money Game.” For 23 minutes of financial fun, just hit that download button. #financialliteracy #education #money #banking
