About Melissa Bondar
Melissa Bondar is a touring stage manager and personal finance enthusiast who blogs at brokeGIRLrich. She has been stage managing since 2004 and some of her favorite jobs include working with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Sleep No More, and Big Apple Circus. She also did a lengthy stint with Holland America Line onboard their ships at the beginning of her career.
Along the way, she realized she was pretty concerned about whether or not she’d ever be able to retire and started learning more about personal finance. The more she learned, the more she realized we really needed to improve our financial literacy in the arts, so she’s been blogging about it ever since.
