The Riches of Kathy Travis

How rich is Kathy Travis? As of late-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. She’s also sharing her wife’s wealth, as Orman estimated to be at least $30 million. While both have retired, the careers they’ve had have helped put them in the place they are in today.

Early Life and Career

There is almost no information revealed about Kathy’s life as she is a very private person. Despite her association with Orman, she has neglected to mention anything about her family, childhood, and upbringing. Even her work is a mystery to the public. There are several avenues where sources believe she has worked in.

One is that she was a television producer who worked with Orman as she rose to prominence on television.

Others believe that she held her own ventures, working in business and as an entrepreneur, though the nature of her endeavors hasn’t been revealed to the public. She has made a few television appearances and was even nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award once, which indicates that she may have worked in production. She has also appeared alongside her wife on several occasions, however, since retiring, the mystery about her line of work continues on with no indication of it being revealed at all, quite why is anybody’s guess!

Suze Orman and Kathy Travis

Wife – Suze Orman

After completing a degree in social work, Suze moved to Berkeley, California and worked as a waitress. In 1980, having developed an interest in business, and borrowed all of $52,000 from friends, she started her own restaurant, however, instead of opening a restaurant, she invested the money through a representative at Merrill Lynch without knowing a lot about investing herself. Her money was lost through options, and wanting to find out why, she trained as an account executive for the company.

It turned out that she had invested her money in options which were considered too high risk for her taste, and that the representative had gone cocky due to becoming a high producing employee at his office. She completed her training and stayed with the company until 1983, leaving to become the vice president of Prudential Bache Securities. She stayed there for four years and then resigned to start her own company – Suze Orman Financial Group. She heavily promoted her company and her knowledge of the financial markets, and was director of her firm until 1997.

Latter Career of Orman

From the mid-1990s, Orman became the author of books, many of which would become best-sellers. Some of these include “The 2009 Action Plan”, “The Money Class”, and “Women & Money”, later publishing updated versions of these three books. Other books she’s written include “The Courage to be Rich”, “You’ve Earned It Don’t Lose It”, and “The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom”. She also launched her own “The Suze Orman Show” through CNBC, and marketed her books by giving it free through “The Oprah Winfrey Show”. She has also been featured in other shows such as “Paula’s Party”, and “America’s Money Class with Suze Orman”.

Orman also often collaborated with Oprah, writing a financial advice column for “O, The Oprah Magazine”. She is also a former author of “Money Matters” on Yahoo!, and has contributed to other publications, including “The Philadelphia Inquirer”, and “Your Business at Home Magazine”. She ended her CNBC show in 2015 so that she could develop a new series called “Suze Orman’s Money Wars”. The following year, she was appointed as the official Personal Finance Educator for the US Army and the Army Reserve, and also launched her own podcast called ‘Suze Orman Women & Money Podcast”.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, it is known that Travis married Orman in 2010, three years after she made a public statement that she was lesbian. The two met at a California party, introduced to each other thanks to a mutual friend. They are business partners, and Orman has mentioned that her partner is responsible for building her brand as she is exactly that – a brand builder. The two are supportive of the Democratic Party, especially during the Obama administration mainly due to their support of same-sex relationships. While the couple still have projects, they consider themselves retired, only working when they want to.

The couple frequent the Bahamas as the go-to destination for vacations, and have a residence there. Kathy has been called Orman’s light of her life and the soulmate of her wife. One of the reasons why there is very limited information about Kathy is due to the lack of any online presence. She doesn’t have accounts on any of the major social media websites – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. She’s retained her privacy for most of her life, and is unlikely to change that any time soon.
