With the support of an Innovation Grant by Cornell Cooperative
Extension Administration, Nancy Reigelsperger, Financial & Consumer
Educator, and Carla Dawejko, Communications Coordinator, have unveiled an
online financial instruction video series entitled the Pyramid Approach to Financial Health.
The series is designed to help people
understand the basic building blocks of sound financial management and the
steps you need to follow to build success. The bottom rungs create a
strong secure foundation for building financial stability and wealth
accumulation – cash and credit management. The top building blocks of
home stability, estate and financial planning, and asset protection each rely
upon the strength and stability of the personal finance strategies used in the
blocks below them.
In creating the Online Pyramid
Approach to Financial Health, CCE-Steuben collaborated with local
partners: Certified Financial Planner
Amy Irvine of Rooted Planning Group; Elder Law Attorney
Patrick Roth; Nancy Williamson, CEO of ServU Credit Union and Pam
Colomaio, Assistant Vice-President of Chemung Canal.
Our vision is that in
today’s busy world, participants can view the videos at a time that is most
convenient for them and can select the topics that are of most interest to
them. The videos provide a brief overview of the financial topics and do
not replace the full financial workshops provided by Cornell Cooperative
