Hi there, I’m Kristi!

I’m a frugalista, minimalist, and wanderer extraordinaire. I’m a numbers girl through and through…I work in accounting and have a bachelor’s degree in finance.

I’m a 40-something mom to three kids and we live in Pennsylvania. After being a single mom for several years, I got remarried in 2020.

My hard-working husband also has two kids. Our blended crew of five ranges from 7 to 18. Our custody schedules mean sometimes we have a quiet house and sometimes we have our hands full!

I’m always up for a road trip and seeing new places. We travel as much as time (and budget) allows and I’m always daydreaming of the next location.

I also like to put on the hiking boots and enjoy the solitude of nature (or maybe take a break from the chaos!)

I’m here to help you discover your path to financial freedom!

My Story

When I first became a single mom, I was overwhelmed by my new financial situation.

I was trying to balance keeping up with monthly bills while rebuilding my savings and reducing my debt. I felt alienated from everyone because I had no flexibility in my budget for anything fun.

I tried what different personal finance gurus recommended but couldn’t ever stick with any method long term. Nothing felt like the right fit.

Eventually, I customized the methods I learned into a money management system that allows me the flexibility to balance my wants with my financial goals.

My mission is to help you discover your path to financial freedom. 

You see, I don’t think there’s any one approach to personal finance that works for everyone. Whether you’re looking to pay off debt, improve your budget, or save money, you’re in the right place!

I believe you make the rules when managing your money.

You get to decide what your priorities are. And you get to decide how you want to get there. My job is to help you find the tools and resources that work for YOU.

When you become a member of the Simply Unscripted community, you’ll gain the flexibility to focus on YOUR financial priorities.
