You want to know more about me?
I’m currently obsessed with crossing things off my bucket list. Because why else do we pay off debt, cut the clutter and simplify our lives? To enjoy them.
I've held many jobs including:
Oriental rug saleswoman
Christian bookstore clerk
Retail buyer at a ski resort,
Debt relief consultant
Baby photographer (I shoot babies!)
Through it all, my one true love is simplifying...my life and yours. I've been doing that since 2007 and have helped several hundred clients.
Living a meaningful life became increasingly important to me as I found myself getting sucked into consumer debt and "keeping up with the Kardashians" while living the dream in Los Angeles. I was 18 when I first traded my financial freedom for a free t-shirt and wound up shackled to Discover card. On top of being smothered with debt, those purchases began smothering my home.
Through realizing that more is not actually more, I've been able to pay off debt, let go of excess stuff and focus on what is truly important to me: friends, family, Pony and travel.

Also, I cribbed an idea from Sarah. Every year on my birthday (March 1) I'm picking 25ish new (or well loved) things I want to try in the coming year (I'll link to an Instagram pic each time I cross one off). Because what’s the point of simplifying if you’re not doing the things you love?
All the pics are here on my Instagram Story.
