Giovanna Lopez - Founder
Giovanna is divorced and remarried to her second husband, Marco, with whom she shares a blended family.

The biggest lesson she’s learned is that if it had been easier to manage receipts, avoid back and forth email haggling, and track completed payments against expenses, tons of pain could have been avoided.
Giovanna is no stranger to tech, she has been architecting human resource management solutions for her Fortune 2000 clients for almost twenty years. Currently, she is Managing Director of Veritas Prime’s Latin American practice and resides in the greater New York City area.
