It was a big weekend- Mother’s Day and Graduation! This card from my daughter was the highlight.
Later in the day another treat- hearing my name called at the University of Pennsylvania Graduation. It was a lot of years in the making- but I finished something that was near and dear to my heart. See the article below for details.
TV Money Expert Adds New Credentials to Her Financial Toolkit
PHILADELPHIA (May 13, 2012) – Television host Mary Caraccioli participated in graduation ceremonies at the University of Pennsylvania where she earned her Masters of Liberal Arts degree. Caraccioli’s concentration in the multi-disciplined program was money and leadership. Her thesis examined the interconnectedness of money and beauty as motivators and a source of stress in professional women’s lives.
Caraccioli said “Working toward this Master’s degree gave me the opportunity to step back from my day to day money reporting and really examine how money affects us emotionally. Through exhaustive research and one on one interviews I gained new insight into how money drives us and how it creates stress – no matter how big the paycheck.”
