I teach millennials how to pay off debt and gain financial independence. I give them the tools to have more fun with money, while sprinkling in a little weirdness silliness.
- my master’s in business,
- my bachelor’s in accounting,
- experience paying off debt ($30,000 in 10 months),
- and a true “started from the bottom” story.

And when I’m not writing about money and creating financial plans for others, I can be found taking spontaneous road trips, reading in coffee shops, or mentoring other entrepreneurs.
I have a fur baby named Patrick, a large family with five siblings and have a partner in crime, Tony.
I love traveling and hiking, later finding out that I’ve tackled two of the most dangerous hikes (Kalalau Trail and Angel’s Landing). But my heart really belongs at the beach.
Want to be part of my digital family?

If you’re dying to know more, here are 5 things you don’t know about me:
- I have dance parties in my kitchen with Patrick.
- I used to compete in figure and bikini competitions and can truly strut my stuff in 5 inch clear heels.
- I’m terrified and fascinated by sharks…seriously they outlived dinosaurs!
- I’m a huge homebody that caught the travel bug.
- I can do some damage on veggie trays, popcorn and coffee!
