Free-Spirited Nerd-Alert! :)


Hey there! I’m Melissa, and I offer practical money tips for the free-spirited nerd at my blog. I’m a former banker and Realtor®, and I have a massive passion for helping other women take control of their family’s finances and create the life they’ve always dreamed of!

As a self-proclaimed free-spirited nerd, I have a constant tug-o-war with my logical, practical (nerd) side that knows what needs to be done with regards to budgeting, saving money, paying off debt, & staying out of debt, but my wild-child, free-spirit likes to march to the beat of her own drum by making impulse purchases, overspending, and getting so far off-task from anything related to my goals.

I realized that with my personality type, I couldn’t follow the one-size-fits-all financial plan, created for everyone. I needed to focus more on behavior change and self-awareness if we were going to finally pay off our debt and achieve financial freedom. After trying for YEARS to pay off our debt and spinning our wheels, we are almost debt free! Hallelujah! My mission is to help other free-spirited nerds achieve the goals they so desperately desire!

I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you!


Great having you here!
