Know a Little More About Me:
I am a wife and a mom to one little boy. I live in South Louisana (yes, hot and humid weather!) and I have an accounting degree and an MBA. I worked for Corporate America until 2015. That year, I got pregnant and decided to quit my job and I became a stay at home mom. Being a new mom was and it is not easy, but I do not regret the decision to quit my job a bit! I enjoy having the time for my little one and being part of each milestone he reaches! I love spending time with my little family, life could not be better without them!
During my college years, I took different accounting and finance courses. This workload of classes put a perspective on the way how I see finances now. Even before attending college, I remember the different methods I utilized to make some extra money such as selling through Amazon or eBay. So, to me, making and saving money is always a topic of interest!
