Ariella Stern - Genealogical Researcher - A native of sunny Los Angeles, Ariella earned her bachelors and masters degrees in education from Yeshiva University in New York City. After spending a few years teaching in different schools on the East Coast, Ariella returned to LA and continued teaching there. She also fulfilled her life-long ambition to become a children's author – with ten books and 2 short novels to her credit. Looking for a change, Ariella pivoted to the business world, joining the Assets International team in late 2022 as a genealogical researcher. She enjoys the thrill of unraveling the mysteries of people's family histories as well as the sense of fulfillment from helping people claim their rightful inheritances. During her free time, Ariella enjoys spending time with family and friends, crafting, and reading.
