Dr. Gayle Galletta is Professor of Emergency Medicine at UMass Chan. As a first generation college graduate, Gayle is self-taught in financial literacy. She is a do-it-yourself investor who subscribes to the philosophy of the White Coat Investor, whose motto is to “help doctors stop doing dumb stuff with their money.” Gayle has lectured locally on financial literacy and nationally on how to afford a sabbatical. In 2012, Gayle took a two-year leave of absence to live and work in Norway, and was instrumental in getting emergency medicine approved as a primary specialty by the Norwegian Minister of Health in 2017. By living below one’s means, paying yourself first, investing in broad market mutual funds, and insuring against catastrophe, Dr. Galletta will show you how to save for a comfortable retirement, and provide you with resources to further your journey in financial literacy.

Jennifer English is the Director of Financial Aid at the UMass Chan Medical School.  As a 25-year veteran of the Financial Aid world she appreciates the variety of backgrounds and experiences that each of our students brings to the Medical School.  She spent her undergraduate years at Mount Holyoke College and at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland studying literature and history but found her passion when she was first hired to answer phones at the Worcester State University Financial Aid Office.  In the intervening years she occupied several positions within the WSU Financial Aid Office, including serving as Interim Director, prior to joining the team at UMass Chan Financial Aid Office in the Fall of 2022.  Jennifer enjoys hiking and reading historical fiction and debating the merits of different budgeting apps.
