Cally Ingebritson graduated from UNM in 2005, having completed a Bachelor of Arts in Latin American Studies and Spanish. Cally chose to transfer to UNM from a small liberal arts college in Minnesota because of the opportunity to double major in Spanish and Latin American Studies. According to her, "Studying Latin American Studies furthered my bilingual Spanish/English skills and gave me a wider understanding of the history of Latin American and the current issues immigrants face upon arriving to the United States. Nearly every job I've been hired for, I've been selected due to my bilingual skills. A degree in Latin American Studies also helped me receive a Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship to study for a year in Bogotá, Colombia." Since her graduation, she has worked and volunteered for a variety of non-profits in Minnesota, Mexico, and Colombia. Currently, she works at Prepare + Prosper, a non-profit in St. Paul, MN, dedicated to helping Minnesotans work towards a brighter financial future. She manages a volunteer-based financial coaching program designed to help people boost savings, eliminate debt and improve credit. Additionally, she is studying to become a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and plans to establish a bilingual financial planning firm to assist both English and Spanish speakers in reaching their financial goals.
