Thanks for stopping by! I am a part-time MBA student at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, a full-time consultant at a top federal consulting company, and most importantly, a wife to an amazing husband and a mom to the most amazing little boy ever. I started the 3 year program at Georgetown when my son was just 4 months old, and 2 years later, I am proud to say that I’ll be graduating in December (and at the top of my class)!

What I’m not so proud of is the mountain of student loan debt that my husband and I will be facing after my 6 month grace period ends in June 2014.  In addition, we also have a modest amount of debt related to his student loans and our cars. Oh yeah – we’re also raising a two year old in a pretty high-cost of living metropolitan area (and really want to have another one soon). 

I am on a mission to eliminate all of our debt (excluding our mortgage) by the time our son starts kindergarten.  We want the freedom to travel, to pursue our hobbies and to enjoy our time with family and friends.  

I know that there are thousands of other blogs about personal finance and blogging about it is not really new, but I think our journey does bring something new to the table. In all my research and reading, I didn’t come across a single one that really addressed my situation (which is one that I think is similar to many others) – that of a married couple with a child (or children) living in a relatively high cost of living area and making a relatively modest income. We are your typical middle-class family and we face many of same challenges that affect other working-class families. I hope that others in our situation will find inspiration from this and be able to apply it in their lives.

If you have any questions, or want any of the templates or spreadsheets that you see on the blog shoot me an email at

  1. I’m in DC metro area with my hubby who’s in part time MBA program right now. We don’t have children though. But it’s good to find another PF blogger from this area, because it is very expensive to live here and easier for me to relate. Good luck in paying down your debt and finishing your MBA~^^
