Work With Me

Need expert advice on debt-free living, homeschooling, or saving money and eating healthy? Book a discovery call for my one-on-one coaching or book me for teaching your small group or class.

Hey friend!

Do you ever get ideas about your life – organizing your schedule, eating healthier, getting on a budget, homeschooling your kids, maybe finally getting out of debt – and you instantly feel overwhelmed?

For nearly 15 years, I’ve been learning how to master the overwhelm and live intentionally. This is my passion and my obsession, and I want to help you.

Book a Discovery Call

Let’s make a plan! I coach people just like you in three major areas:

1. Saving money & eating healthy

Do you want to save money and eat healthy – but feel totally overwhelmed?

I’ve been saving money and eating healthy for 13+ years – while living below the poverty line, cooking with food allergies, and wrestling picky eaters. Check out our training here! For one-on-one coaching, stay right here!

2. Homeschooling

As a second-generation homeschooler and work-at-home mom, I help other parents navigate home education, discover the methods that work best for them, and juggle work-life balance.

3. Debt-free living

Chris and I have been living debt-free since 2008, when we realized we only had $25/week for groceries. Since then, we’ve navigated countless money decisions and debt-free obstacles. If you want to know what it looks like in real life, you’re in the right place.

If this sounds good to you, send me an email with the subject line “Discovery Call,” and let’s get started!

See what they’re saying.
