Meet the Founder of Valuable Life Skills!!!!

Meet Marisa Cotton! A Mompreneur with a vision and passion to help others. She is the creative mind behind Valuable Life Skills. After her father passed away in 2016, she wanted to do something to give back and share some of the knowledge that her father left her. Her father, a retired Accountant, and Mother, a semi-retired nurse, were sticklers for Financial Literacy and Education. They preached saving money and using credit responsibly. Her father even created a song that he would sing to her and her other 2 siblings all the time entitled “Save Your Money.”

Marisa is an awesome mother to a beautiful baby girl and wife to her long-time best friend of 14+ years. Marisa holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration from Cal State Dominguez Hills, a Master’s in Public Administration, with an Emphasis in Human Resources from Cal State Long Beach.
