Rob Mooney entered the foster care system at age six, changing homes twenty times before aging out eighteen. Notwithstanding his traumatic and unstable childhood, he chose to be successful – earning degrees in finance and law before receiving international recognition for his expertise in his field of practice. Rob left the practice of law to spend time with his wife and five children, and to share his story with youth in foster care with the hope to inspire them to choose a better life.  His first book, published in July 2020, A Foster Kid’s Road To Success, is written directly to teens in foster care, and shares the six essential principles teens in care need to understand and internalize in order to succeed after aging out.  Generous donors have purchased thousands of copies of A Foster Kid’s Road To Success to be delivered to foster teens and the organizations that serve them.  Book donations can be made at www.robertpkmooney.com, and requests for donated copies can be sent to author@robertpkmooney.com

An Army veteran who currently works for the federal government, she has two biological children of her own and helped her husband raise his two children in their blended family.
