In a series of video interviews, Kathleen Volk Miller, Drexel University professor and writer, spoke with UBS about losing her husband, Don, unexpectedly, leaving her with three then-young children. She explores how overwhelming the financial burden was to shoulder on her own, why planning is critical and why women need to stop romanticizing money to ensure that they have secure financial footing.
Volk Miller also delves into how things may have changed for women, but not as much as we think—both in the classroom and in the real world.
"My husband and I had full financial transparency"
In part one of a six part series, Volk Miller discusses how the financial burden was overwhelming when she lost her husband, exploring why it is important for women to plan, even if you have full financial transparency with your partner.
