I’m a mom of three and the proud wife of a former enlisted Marine. My family and I currently live in the beautiful and scenic city of Reno, NV.  A few of the things I love include coffee (lots of it!), cozy blankets (lots of ’em!), long walks (with the hubby), and I still absolutely love that feeling you get when scoring an awesome deal – and then getting to share it with anyone & everyone who will listen! 😆

I began blogging at Hip2Save.com in the summer of 2008 as a way to help myself, my family, and my friends save money. To be honest and totally transparent, the biggest reason I began blogging was to keep myself accountable. Before starting Hip2Save, I had racked up over 40K in credit card debt.😨 Read my full story here.

When starting my tiny blog back in 2008 I had no idea this hobby of mine would turn into a full-time endeavor and that Hip2Save would become the nationally-recognized savings site that it is today!

Here’s a look at how time flies when you’re having fun, and how my family has grown as the site has grown! ❤️ It’s definitely bittersweet and crazy how different my family looked in 2012 versus 2017! 😱

There’s a lot more to my backstory than what I’m diving into here, but if you’re interested in learning more about me and my own personal journey regarding addiction, depression, and how those little things called coupons have done so much more than save me money, please watch the video here.


Behind the scenes at Hip2Save there’s a lot going on, and I am so incredibly grateful for our amazing team. Our hard-working team includes deal testers, content creators, deal writing experts, community engagement specialists, and more.

When I first started the site, it was just me… and then my big sister Bryn came on board to help me do all the Hip things. Over time our team has grown to include over 40 money-saving experts from all over the country! It’s incredible to be able to employee so many amazing individuals. ❤️
