Internationally-known experts on children, families and money, the Gallos have written two books (The Financially Intelligent Parent: 8 Steps to Raising Successful, Generous and Responsible Children; critically-acclaimed Silver Spoon Kids: How Successful Parents Raise Responsible Children) and established The Gallo Institute, a national organization offering education and counsel to families and financial advisors around issues of families, children and money. Eileen Gallo, Ph.D., is a licensed psychotherapist who works with individuals and families dealing with the psychological and emotional issues related to money, children and family wealth.

Both have also been educators and presiders over committees addressing key family, financial and legal issues. Recognized as leading field experts, the Gallos have been writing and lecturing on the psychological and emotional issues of family wealth since 1987.
