Koochel selected as 2017 AFCPE Outstanding Symposium Poster Award Winner

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Emily Koochel, doctoral student in applied family science, was selected as the 2017 Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education’s (AFCPE) Outstanding Symposium Poster Award Winner for her proposal titled Financial Transparency Scale Development.

To increase the capacity to study the role of finances in the marital relationship, Koochel developed the Financial Transparency Scale (FTS) to assess financial transparency between married partners. Koochel developed this new scale after seeing that there was currently no scale available to measure financial transparency.

Koochel will present her poster on November 15th at the AFCPE Symposium in San Diego, California.
