Your Life, Reimagined
Why I am passionate...
My parents are hard workers who did their best to provide my sister and I with everything we needed and wanted. In the late 2000s, my parents filed for bankruptcy after an accumulation of unfortunate events, a job loss and an unsuccessful business venture. The amount of stress, worry, guilt and uncertainty really took a toll on my parents, trickling down to my sister and I as we prepared for college. Due to the bankruptcy, my parents were not in a financial position to assist me through college. In that first year, I reached out to a family friend to cosign my student loans! I maxed out financial aid, took out private loans and federal loans just to get by. In my second year of college, I maxed out my loan options and worked 3 jobs to make ends meet.
Fast forward a few years, and my anxiety around money only grew. I was 22 years old, 6 months pregnant with my son and just signed a lease for an apartment with my, now, husband. I had to quickly learn how to be a mother, a spouse AND how to manage our money. We were making about $300 dollars each per week, had an average of $500 dollars in savings and bills quickly stacking. To top it off, I thought it was a smart idea to finish my college education by charging it on a CREDIT CARD! (We all make mistakes right!?) Our debt was raising quicker than we could make the money back and that is when I reached a breaking point. I couldn’t sleep, I was always irritable, and we were just spending frivolously because we didn’t know our whole financial picture. I began to read and digest as much information about personal finance as humanly possible to get out of this taxing situation.
I am living proof that it is a possibility to turn your life around!
I want to help you avoid these scenarios or at least climb out of it! No judgement because I have been there. With some guidance and dedication, I am confident you can soar and truly begin to feel the abundance in your finances, and in your life.
