I am a self-proclaimed number nerd and the color purple enthusiast. I hold a mechanical engineering degree from Brigham Young University where I fell in love with spreadsheets, optimization, and formulas. After graduation, I worked for 18 months as a structures engineer. With the birth of my second child, it was time to be home with my children. At home, I became the primary home finance manager, chef, maid, and care giver to three toddlers. Away from the world of engineering design, I quickly fell in love with money. Not in the way that is the root of all evil, but as an exciting optimization puzzle. Other things I enjoy improving include cooking, parenting, organization, gardening, and my character.
I intend for this blog to build up people’s financial know-how, quality of life, peace, and general happiness. I hope that as I make Milly, you will find ways to make you.
