Ashley Lapato

Video Content Manager at YNAB

Ashley Lapato is a personal finance educator for YNAB, a money-planning tool with a proven method that teaches four simple habits to help people change their relationship with money. After spending years believing that she was just “bad with money” before finding YNAB, Ashley is now on a mission to teach others that managing money is a skill—one that is never too late to learn.

Ashley has earned a reputation on TikTok @TheOrganizedWallet for her refreshingly relatable approach to personal finance, which has helped hundreds of thousands of people learn to organize their finances and spend with confidence. When she’s not promoting mindful money habits, Ashley enjoys reading, photography, pretending to be an outdoor girl with her husband, and cuddling with their two cats.
