Meet The Crew

Jen

Jen

CEO

I have a BA in psychology and my love of industrial/organizational psych led me to pursue a master’s in HR. After I finished grad school, I found myself underemployed and buried in student loan debt. I wasn’t sure what to do until I read The Total Money Makeover and became inspired to pay off my debt ASAP. My husband and I have paid off $92,000 so far and we have $35,000 left to go. Along this journey, I became passionate about helping others to make smart financial choices and avoid debt. I hope this blog inspires you to live frugally!

Ben

Ben

CTO

My husband Ben is a multi-talented graphic designer, web designer, photographer, and marketer. By day, he’s a Senior Marketing Specialist and by night, he handles all things related to design and development for FM. He does an amazing job of keeping everything running smoothly behind the scenes! Ben tackles everything from designing printables to optimizing SEO to creating an awesome budget calculator and so much more. He dreams of owning the Peel P50, the world’s smallest car.

Herbie

Herbie

CDO

Herbie the Love Pug is our two year old pug and the FM mascot. He keeps everyone in the office laughing with his constant snorts, grumbles, and other bizarre noises. He is also the cutest dog in the entire world (in my completely unbiased opinion). In his spare time, Herbie enjoys following Jen and Ben around, snuggling constantly, eating bacon strips, playing, and stealing the chihuahua’s toys. Herbie dreams of a debt-free life that includes doggie spa days and endless gourmet treats.
