Work with Brynne

Feminist Financial Handbook authorHi!

My name is Brynne, and I am the owner, creator and content director here at Femme Frugality. I was living in poverty when I started this blog in 2011, but was quickly finding ways to dig myself out and up. I decided to share everything I was learning on the internet and a blog was born.

What started as just a hobby developed into a career. Femme Frugality has been a Plutus Awards finalist for four years running, helping women earn more, save more and fight systemic economic oppression while they’re at it.

Today, I’m the single mother of some pretty phenomenal kids. We live a comfortable and vibrant life together in Western Pennsylvania, with my work in personal finance media providing us with our sole source of income.


Blogging has led to numerous other opportunities which I am incredibly grateful for. In October of 2018, I published The Feminist Financial Handbook with Mango Press. It was an Amazon #1 New Release across multiple categories, but I sometimes have a hard time talking about my own work.

Here are some words I was honored Professor Barbara O’Neill of Rutgers contributed to tell you a little more about it:

While The Feminist Financial Handbook addresses personal finance topics such as budgeting systems, investment options, and emergency funds, its unique value is describing the backstories of women’s financial lives. Chapter topics include: single parenting, gender income gaps, salary negotiations, financial account ownership, PTSD and depression, and domestic and financial abuse.

Skillfully combining political and historical insights, research findings, and real-life stories of women managing their finances, Conroy offers readers hope, support, and specific action steps at the end of each chapter. Women who desire financial security for themselves and others and financial educators, counselors, coaches, and planners who assist them will benefit greatly from the unique perspectives contained within this book.

If you’re looking for an engaging speaker to get your audience excited about a topic that is typically considered snore-worthy, you’ve come to the right place. I have both spoken at and organized exciting local events in the Pittsburgh region, in addition to speaking at national conferences.

Topics I’ve tackled before include financial management for female freelancers, overcoming poverty, and the finances of raising special needs children. In addition to these topics, I am available to speak on:

  • Intersectional Women’s Finances
  • Funding College (Especially for low-income students, who can get paid to go to school whether they be traditional students or adult learners.)
  • The Financial Plight of the Average American Household
  • Understanding Retirement Accounts and Everything Else Your HR Department Offers
  • Mental Health and Money
  • The Effects of Domestic Violence on Women’s Finances

If you have another topic you’d like addressed, don’t hesitate to reach out. If I’m not the best fit for your event, I’d be happy to connect you with one of my amazing colleagues.
