A recent study found that 52 percent of people automatically assume that having more than six credit cards is a sign of poor financial management, and 19 percent of those people believed the person might have a gambling problem. In either case, those people were being judgemental and unfair. But as a financial professional who advises people on managing their money, I think this study has a much deeper meaning.

Growing up in New York City, Tristin was with the Ford Modeling Agency where she quickly became one of the top child models in the country. She would later land several national commercials such as Kraft Cheese, Play Skool Kool- Aid, Sunkist, ROSS, McDonald's and Hershey's. Tristin was also in several Broadway productions to include Disney's, "The Lion King" as Young Nala. Since 2016 she has been starring on CBS' "MacGyver" as Riley Davis. Her other television credits include a starring role as Shaina on Nickelodeon's "Gullah Gullah Island", "Everybody Hates Chris" as Jenise Huckstable, and the multi-personality bully, Bernice on Nickelodeon's "Neds Declassified". She also appeared on Disney XD's "Zeke & Luther" as Monica Lopez, "Big Time Rush" as Stephanie King, "True Jackson VP" as Hailey, Disney XD's "Kickin' It" as Vanessa Love, "Alias" as Robin Dixon, "Private" as Taylor Bell, "Supergirl" as Paulina, and "The Vampire Diaries" as Sarah Nelson.

Mays' parents, Viveca and Michael Mays, worked as an artist and in the military, respectively. She grew up in New York City until 2003 when her family moved to Moreno Valley, California, where she graduated from Vista del Lago High School. Her older brother Jeryn is also an actor.
