Giovanna is divorced and remarried to her second husband, Marco, with whom she shares a blended family. Giovanna and Marco have been living the co-parenting money struggle for years with three teens from their previous marriages. 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.

Currently, she is Managing Director of Veritas Prime’s Latin American practice and resides in the greater New York City area.
