The Women We Consult
At Fear.less Girl Financial, we know that none of us does this alone. That's why we brought together these amazing women to consult with from time to time.
MONICA TUCKER is President and CEO of MOCHA Enterprises, a small business publishing and consulting firm, and has dedicated over 25 years as a life consultant.
She has served 12 years as a board member, three years as chair, of the Armed Services YMCA – El Paso/Fort Bliss, an organization dedicated to making military life easier for junior enlisted Service members and their families.
As a lifelong volunteer, she actively mentors and coaches fellow military spouses, youth, and men and women who aspire to serve in the community and/or find balance in their lives. Her advocacy and activism include assisting with efforts to eliminate racism, bullying, and discrimination against those who are socio-economically disadvantaged.
Monica is the publisher of Black El Paso Voice News & Information, writes blogs and participates in podcasts about life and combatting negativity. She uses her personal experiences as a tool to help others identify and overcome fears and obstacles to pursuing their goals.
In addition to her community activism, she is dedicated to sharing the stories of Black men and women age 40 and older.
Monica has been married for 30 years to a U.S. Army soldier who is now retired. They have two children, a 29-year-old, and an 18-year-old who just completed freshman year in college. She enjoys spending time with her grandson, making crafts, painting, sewing, and reading. Monica believes that volunteering is a source of relaxation and peace and encourages others to take the time to assist others at least once a month.

ROBIN PORTANOVA is a special education advocate and founder of the non-for-profit organization Stamford Education 4 Autism, where she currently holds the position of president. She also operates the Just A Peace Giftshop (owned by Stamford Education 4 Autism), giving young adults on the autism spectrum the opportunity to practice their life and social skills in a retail environment.
Robin obtained a B.S. in Human Services and Social Work, and an M.A. in Special Education. Her advocacy became serious when her first son was born with hydrocephalus and was later diagnosed with autism at the age of seven. She was prominent in developing specialized programs throughout her local public schools, which allowed her son and students like him to achieve educational success.
Robin believes in the importance of staying organized in every aspect of her life, especially financially. As a woman, she knew that financial security would bring her clarity, although she admits, not always an easy task to achieve. Mistakes, she has made many, but after years of building her foundation and especially seeking the advice of woman in the financial world, who understood her frustration first hand, she was able to get to a point that allows her life to be simple, but filled with magnificence.
In Robin’s free time, she enjoys baking, writing, and listening to music. Her family, friends and traditions are of her upmost importance. Robin Portanova, formerly from Northport, NY, currently resides in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Robin can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
