Get to Know Guli Fager, MPH

Guli Fager, Master of Public Health in Sexuality and Health (MPH)

After 20 years in reproductive health and sex education, I transitioned to a career in finance in 2021. While the shift may seem dramatic, the interpersonal and communication skills necessary to help individuals, couples, and families answer embarrassing questions and solve deeply private problems related to sexual health also inform my approach to talking with people about money. 

I also bring experience as a business owner. For five years I owned a public health consulting practice, working with a variety of nonprofit clients to improve health equity and outcomes. Additionally, I managed a small private therapy practice, growing the business, instituting payroll and retirement plans, and ensuring compliance with Maryland state regulations. Through this work, I have gained valuable insight into the day-to-day needs of small business owners, especially therapists. The experience of owning and working in a spousal/family business is unique area of expertise I bring to our clients. Your worries about self-employment, financial planning and long-term security belong with a professional, so that you can focus on the important work you do!

I live in the historic mill village of Hampden/Woodberry in Baltimore (Go O’s!), where I train for and compete in triathlons. I love to travel, especially by Amtrak sleeper car.
