When I graduated from the University of Michigan 15 years ago, I had one of the top business degrees in the country, but I also had more than $100,000 in student loan debt. On a mission to pay it off, I soon found out how hard getting debt-free can be without personal finance education. My parents had taught me how the world worked: you went to college, got a good job, earned money, and paid your bills. But how could I pay my bills when I was struggling under crippling debt?
Fast forward to today. I got a personal finance education and it changed my life. I learned how to create and implement a debt payoff plan, and now my passion is helping others do the same. As a Certified Financial Education Instructor, I have the courage, confidence, and credentials to help make a difference in other people’s lives.
