Meet the Plutus Foundation Team

The executive team manages the day-to-day operations of the Plutus Foundation.

Harlan L. Landes

Executive Director
Harlan L. Landes founded one of the first independent “personal finance blogs,“ Consumerism Commentary, to hold himself accountable for his own financial decisions,, and he played a lead role in fostering the community of financial influencers. Harlan also created the Plutus Awards to highlight independent financial publishers.

Charlotte Baker

Project Coordinator
Charlotte Baker has worked with and helped start two non-profit organizations over the last eight years. She is committed to the mission of the Plutus Foundation and is passionate about financial literacy for all communities.

Sherrian Crumbley

Grant Manager
Sherrian Crumbley has worked with various non-profits in administrative and creative roles over the last decade. She has also worked as a content manager, editor, and virtual assistant in the personal finance space and continues to work with her husband as a personal finance educator on their blogs and in their community.

Stephanie Kibler

Community Manager
Stephanie “Stephonee” Kibler came onto the online personal finance scene in 2007 (when it was still called a “blogosphere”) and was one of its first voices for low-income millennials and young women with her blog, Poorer Than You. Through the years, she has worked to help build up online communities focused on financial literacy for women and other underrepresented groups, and the lower and middle classes. She lives in the pricey Washington, DC-area suburbs (for some reason) with her husband and son, and can usually be found snarking on Twitter.
