Brad O’Brien is working to change conversations around personal finance and debt. As the manager of financial education at GreenPath Financial Wellness, he develops and leads initiatives to help people get out of debt.

GreenPath is a nonprofit group that was founded in Detroit in 1961 aimed at helping people manage and get out of credit card debt. The group is still based in Detroit, but now has offices in 18 states and offers free, in-person and over-the-phone counseling services to anyone nationwide. It served about 200,000 people nationwide and 6,000 people in Wisconsin last year, O’Brien said.
