We were featured on the cover of our local newspaper, The Darien Times, in an article titled, “Darien mother and daughter offer women financial tips.” Here’s an excerpt of the article:
“Susan and Stephanie Bruno, a mother and daughter duo raised in Darien, created DivaCFO about one year ago to help women organize their finances in a fun and comfortable way.
‘Divas don’t have to be ditzy and finance doesn’t have to be dull,’ according toDivacfo.com. Susan is a veteran in the finance business. She is a certified public accountant, personal financial specialist, certified financial planner and certified insurance consultant. Her daughter has a degree journalism and media studies, and takes on the creative side of DivaCFO.
They decided to bring their talents together after one night in the Darien library during a power outage caused by Hurricane Irene. They enlisted Susan’s sister, Gretchen Bruno, of 341 Studios in Darien, as the graphic designer. They later hired Coleen Tully, an app developer based in Boulder, Colo., to create Diva Docs.
The project developed a blog and an iPhone application, released in July 2012, that helps users to create financial security by planning ahead. IPhone owners can upload their financial files to Diva Docs, which is supported by DropBox, an online file hosting service, and access them anywhere.“
